Hitting the Hardwood for a Good Cause

Foxy TrottersIt was great to see a packed gymnasium for the third annual #Slamtastic PTO fundraiser. The game featured the Harlem Wizards and the Foxy Trotters--a group of city officials, teachers and administrators. I want to thank the many sponsors, PTO members and attendees who once again made the event such a resounding success.

Standing with Veterans

Vets small business videoLast week, I stood side-by-side with veteran small-business owners and members of the Veterans' Chamber of Commerce to call for passage of a bill I am sponsoring to give additional support to veteran-owned small businesses by granting those veteran-owned businesses additional bidding preferences under state contracting laws and waiving the first year's business entity tax for start-up veteran-owned businesses.

Once passed and signed into law, Connecticut will have the strongest veterans' small business preference in the United States.

This is a badge of honor for us that builds upon what I believe is arguably our best-in-the-nation status regarding our veterans. Connecticut is the first state in the nation to end veterans' homelessness, we will have the strongest vets' small business preference, we exempt 100 percent of their retirement pay from the income tax (can't do better than 100 percent), and we enacted the Senate Democrats-sponsored STEP-Up for Vets Program.
