Devlin tackles questions from Fairfield County businesses

At the annual Connecticut Business & Industry Association’s “Business Day” at the State Capitol, State Rep. Laura Devlin offered a common sense message to small business owners and manufacturers, asking them to hold lawmakers accountable for the actions they take and proposals they advocate for at the Capitol.  

Devlin participated in a panel discussion with other Fairfield County legislators and members of the Fairfield county business community, where business owners raised questions about the future of Connecticut’s economy and the steps the legislature will take to stimulate growth for small businesses.   

As Rep. Devlin fielded questions about current proposals at the Capitol, most lawmakers talked about how the pro-business initiatives had been outpaced by anti-business proposals pushed in other legislative committees.  

“Elected officials are famous for saying one thing in their districts, then coming here and doing something completely different,” Devlin said. “The legislature, as a whole, needs to have a message sent to it. Leave small business alone.”
