(HARTFORD) — The state’s leading business advocacy group, Connecticut Business & Industry Association (CBIA), has officially released its data illustrating how members of the CT State House of Representatives voted in 2022. According to the association, Representative Lezlye Zupkus (R-89) earned a 100% voting score based on her unwavering support of several new pro-business laws.
“I’m grateful to serve CT business interests and receive recognition from the CBIA,” said Rep. Zupkus in response to the report. “Our state is becoming increasingly unaffordable and the businesses that represent the lifeblood of our economy are being burdened with high prices, and I am fighting to eliminate useless mandates and regulations that hinder economic development.”
Each year the CBIA rates Connecticut lawmakers’ voting records in committee or on the House floor concerning an array of ‘key bills’ determined by the association on Connecticut’s business environment and economic stability. Tallied votes that support the business community’s position would reflect positively, while votes in opposition rendered a lower overall score.
The list of bills included issues ranging from developing a plan for women returning to Post-COVID Workplace, addressing Manufacturing Jobs, establishing Licensing Reforms, and creating a Commercial Driver’s License Training program. Rep. Zupkus was featured supporting the business community’s position six times during the 2022 legislative session.
CBIA is Connecticut’s leading business organization — with a membership comprised of hundreds of small, medium and large-sized businesses around the state.
