Dan: Too darn high -- $250 fee for small business same as large. 76% more for electricity in CT than national average. Must wrestle that to the ground. Less $ ways to access healthcare 20% for health insurance than 1 year ago. Pool small businesses and tier for small businesses. I did that.
Ned: Most important question. Small business creates jobs. We are dead last. Spend hundreds of millions on big co. Reduce taxes & fees -- energy tax. Reduce high cost of healthcare. Bank windows closed-- triple funding for CT innovations to get money. Speed up approval process from govt -- DEP, small business will lead us out of this recession.
Dan: I created small business resources in government ctr. Overburdened by property taxes.
