State Rep. Brenda Kupchick (R-Fairfield) is asking all Fairfield business owners for their input for legislative proposals this coming session.

“We cannot forget that local business owners are the state’s chief job-creators and anything the state can do to improve the relationship with the business community and lesson the burdens on employers would be welcomed by all,” said Kupchick.

Kupchick formed a Business Advisory Council (BAC) in 2011 with quarterly meetings. Their next meeting is Wednesday, January 14, at 9 a.m., at the Fairfield University Downtown Bookstore, 1499 Post Road. The group is finalizing proposals for the upcoming 2015 Legislative Session. The BAC, which consists of 13 members, collected input from business owners and discuss the challenges they face running their specific business in the State of Connecticut. Kupchick welcomes all interested business owners to attend the council meetings.

The Business Advisory Council relies on the participation of business owners that meet in the mornings every six to eight weeks throughout the year. The idea is this exchange of ideas will give small businesses a voice in Hartford and allows their legislator to share upcoming legislation with Fairfield business owners.

Since Kupchick started the Business Advisory Council in 2011 she has come up with proposals she has turned into legislation that received significant debate at the State Capitol. The proposed bill deadline for this new legislative session is Jan. 16.

I plan to propose the below bills again this year with the hope more ideas from business owners are put forward.

Kupchick said, “The BAC meetings give me an opportunity to listen to the diverse needs of the Fairfield Business Community and work toward positive solutions. As a small business owner myself, I understand the voluminous regulations that make little sense and cause real hardships on small business owners.

Since forming the group, I’ve received very positive feedback from members. I encourage business owners from our town to join me in these very productive meetings as we prepare for the upcoming legislative session next year.”

If Fairfield small business owners are unable to attend on January 14th they can contact Rep. Kupchick’s office at the State Capitol to submit a proposal. The Business Advisory Councils mission is to work together to create a more business-friendly environment in Connecticut.
