The Fairfield Republican legislative delegation joined Senate and House Republican leaders Thursday, Sept. 24, to share their concerns about Connecticut's business environment and GE’s potential move from Fairfield. State Sen. Tony Hwang, Rep. Brenda Kupchick, and Rep. Laura Devlin organized a press conference on the Fairfield Town Hall Green to renew their calls for a special session to make holistic changes to the state budget and fight for local businesses.
“Our state is in a crisis. Our financial house is falling apart and the very foundation is crumbling as more and more businesses and residents leave for states with a stable and livable tax structure,” Hwang said. “This situation will only get worse if we do nothing. A crisis demands immediate attention. It demands thoughtful leadership and decisive action. We stand ready to do our part for all of the people of Connecticut. Will Gov. Malloy and Democratic legislative leaders join us?”
