To the Editor:
Is there a more important challenge facing Connecticut than putting people back to work? Thanks to Rep. Kim Rose we've got a blueprint for doing just that. Rep. Kim Rose led the fight to pass bipartisan jobs legislation, which cut the business entity tax in half; increased tax credits for new hires and provided funds for small businesses to expand.
Since banks aren't lending, she helped create the Small Business Express Package—A rapid response program for investment in business growth, hiring and working capital.
I am a small business owner and this legislation will help my business, and many others grow and remain competitive. This is common sense legislation that promises to help our state overcome one of our most persistent economic challenges – small business job growth.
That’s why I will be voting for the common sense candidate on Election Day, Rep. Kim Rose.
