Sen. Formica highlighted the potential for Connecticut to become a vibrant center for growth with the right economic and financial policies. He also discussed the importance of what is happening in the legislature now to address the state’s challenging financial situation, and how that could impact people’s decisions related to the real estate market.

“Our state is at a crossroads. We are facing significant economic challenges, and now is the time to make decisions that will move Connecticut forward  so that we can restore people’s confidence in our state as a great place to live, work and raise a family,” said Sen. Formica. “This year, I was honored to help produce a budget proposal with fellow Connecticut Senate Republicans that creates stability and predictability for businesses, families and municipalities. I am continuing to advocate for these policies at the Capitol as lawmakers work towards a new state budget. My goal as a lawmaker is to create an environment where opportunity can thrive to encourage people to not only stay here, but to come here and make Connecticut their home.”


The one day conference included a discussion of the legislative session and plans for economic recovery throughout the state. It also featured learning sessions aimed at helping realtors better serve their clients.
