ECONOMIC OUTLOOK RANKING HAS CONNECTICUT STAGNANTLY LURKING AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BARRELNo wonder our economic outlook remains at 47th in the nation again this year. The very people capable of improving our situation fail to even recognize that it exists.
Prevailing Wage MandateFight against legislation to extend the costly prevailing wage mandate to private construction projects. While Connecticut’s prevailing wage law makes public construction bidding more complicated for small contractors, it also makes these projects more costly for taxpayers. Some advocates are trying to expand the state’s prevailing wage law to private projects as well. NFIB will stand opposed to any further expansion of the prevailing wage mandate, but especially against any intrusion into the private sector.
