BUDGET DEAL LEAVES SMALL BUSINESS COMMUNITY LOOKING TO THE FUTURE FOR LONG TERM ECONOMIC SOLUTIONThe legislature convened a special session this week when they failed to come to a budget agreement to close the $1 billion deficit during regular session.
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.
