The Chamber’s legislative agenda is focused on initiatives that have a direct impact on our members and their ability to conduct business successfully including promoting innovation, advancing major development projects, lowering business costs, streamlining regulations and strengthening the industries that drive our region’s economy.
To keep you educated and informed of the legislation that directly affects the regional business community, the Chamber, in coordination with our Lobbyist Group, International Government Solutions, will track several targeted issues throughout the legislative session. To view the legislation tracked during the most recent legislative session that adjourned on June 7th, 2017 click here.
Danbury is fortunate to have a pro-business mayor and under Mayor Mark Boughton’s leadership, Danbury has championed the lowest unemployment rate among all of Connecticut’s major cities through significant growth in economic development and a steady increase in job opportunities. Danbury has been named the second-best city to live in in the country and the best small city in Connecticut to start a business. The Greater Danbury region has a dedicated and responsive delegation representing our interests in the Legislature; however, our Senators and Representatives cannot serve your interests unless they hear about your issues and concerns. It is vital that Chamber members contact their legislators regularly and make them aware of how pending legislation may positively or negatively affect businesses and the economy in their district. We will continue to provide you with numerous opportunities to make your voice heard, especially during the legislative session, at a variety of legislative briefings and other events.
