Sen. Sampson Scores as Perfect Advocate for CT’s Business Community

July 7, 2022
Recognized for 100 percent pro-business voting record by CBIA in 2022 Legislative Session Report


State Sen. Rob Sampson (R-Wolcott), ranking member of the Labor & Public Employees Committee, was recently recognized by the Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA) for his 100 percent pro-business voting record on key bills that it identified as critical to the state’s business community and overall economic growth.


CBIA identified ten key bills from the 2022 legislative session that make up the framework for a legislator’s voting record based on the potential impact—positive or negative—on job growth and the state’s post-pandemic recovery.


Legislators were scored on these measures based on their opposition or support for the business community’s positions.


“Business creates jobs, and we must let Connecticut’s private businesses of all sizes to do exactly that, unencumbered by state government,” said Senator Sampson. “This voting record reflects my priorities as a state senator and the voice of hundreds of businesses in my district. Through no fault of their own, business leaders and workers were told to shut down and go home two years ago. Now, as these job-creators recover, they face historic, crushing inflation as an insult to injury. I encourage my colleagues in Hartford to prioritize job growth and an economy that works for all Connecticut residents when we contemplate legislation in 2023,” he said.
