Sponsored by the People’s United Center for Women and Business at Quinnipiac University and the Women Presidents’ Educational Organization, this event also will celebrate Women Entrepreneurship Week, which runs from Oct. 19-26.
The legislators will discuss important pieces of legislation that came before the General Assembly this year, including topics such as the state’s new paid family medical leave program, an increase to the minimum wage and changes to the pass-through entity tax.
The tax will apply to not only prepared meals such as sandwiches, deli salads, pizza and hot buffet items, but also containers of lettuce, small packages of snacks, loose baked goods, wrapped salads, small servings of ice cream, and meal replacement bars.
As of July 1st, there are a number of new laws that went into effect. I want to make you aware of this information as some of these new laws, including the budget, will add financial pressure on Connecticut residents and businesses.
With the governor’s recent budget address including more than fifty tolls expected on all major highways across the state, this event will allow area residents to share their concerns, get their questions answered, and discuss potential alternatives.
