Your source for Central Connecticut legislative information.
One of our goals at the Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce is to foster legislative and governmental advocacy. As part of this, we look to take any and all actions necessary to be a voice for our members at the federal, state and local level. We continue to work towards creating a business environment in Connecticut that is pro-growth, pro-investment and encourages the entrepreneurial spirit.
To assist our members and the Central Connecticut community in helping to achieve these goals, reach out to our legislators or just better understand our government, we have compiled a list of helpful resources.
