SMALL BUSINESS PARTICIPATION AT WEDNESDAY'S TAX PANEL HEARING VITAL TO THOSE SEEKING REFORMTestifying before the tax panel presents a unique opportunity for NFIB members and small business owners in general to not only voice their frustrations, but present plausible solutions to lawmakers.
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.
