Kane Joins Bipartisan Tourism Caucus at State Capitol

April 6, 2016

The first meeting of the Connecticut state legislature’s bipartisan Tourism Caucus was convened on Apr. 5 at the State Capitol.

Sen. Rob Kane (pictured) said the newly formed alliance will meet regularly to push for more reliable funding for Connecticut’s tourism industry.

In 2013, Kane’s proposal to establish a statewide “Connecticut Antiques Trail” became state law.

“My focus is on how we can grow tourism-related jobs in our region,” Sen. Rob Kane said. “Woodbury is the Antiques Capital of Connecticut. Quassy Amusement & Water Park in Middlebury is celebrating its 108th year this year. We have incredible natural scenery and top-rated bed-and-breakfast establishments. The question is, how can we maximize our assets in order to create even more jobs across Connecticut? I look forward to serving on this panel, and I’d like to hear ideas from taxpayers on this topic.”
