Rep. Wood to Host Business Information Forum in Darien

Posted on October 22, 2019 by admin


DARIEN – The 2019 legislative session is proving to be one of most impactful times on the state’s business community in recent years, especially considering the new Democrat-enacted taxes that went into effect October 1st. Members of the state’s business community and small to mid-sized businesses, in particular, are therefore critical players in the effort to turn around Connecticut’s economy.


With that in mind, State Representative Terrie Wood (R-141) is hosting an “Open for Business?” information forum for constituents to learn information on legislative action that affects the state’s business community. Rep. Wood will be discussing topics such as the state’s new family leave program, an increase in the minimum wage and new requirements on sexual harassment training.

I believe that this is a great way to stay connected with the key issues and concerns of our economy, and support the people who are driving its growth.

It’s also a pleasure learning new things and meeting with the job creators in our state. They are running vibrant businesses that add so much vitality to Connecticut. One of my more interesting

Real IDs: Do I Need One? How Do I Get One?

Posted on September 23, 2019 by admin


According to the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), beginning on October 1, 2020, the U.S. Federal Government will require anyone boarding an airplane for domestic travel or entering certain federal buildings to have a “verified” driver’s license, state-issued ID card or show additional proof of identification, such as a passport. This verification is indicated on your license or ID card by a gold star in the top right corner and is commonly referred to as a “Real ID.”
