The news conference was scheduled for 10:30 a.m. in Hartford on Church Street. The proposal submitted is a package of reforms focused on modernizing the Department of Economic and Community Development’s business assistance programs.

The two initiatives set forth by Gov. Lamont aim to support job creation. The governor is proposing two initiatives: Jobs CT and Small Business Express 2.0. Both aim to support job creation and ensure taxpayer funds are protected respectively.

Jobs CT is a performance-based incentive program for businesses to expand or relocate jobs to Connecticut. Small Business Express 2.0 is described as a new phase of the state’s program that helps small businesses.

“Some of the best investments we can make as a state are in companies that are already here and that want to be here,” Governor Lamont said. “This sends a message to the region and the world that Connecticut supports its corporate partners.”

The governor said he will submit the package included the mentioned proposals to the General Assembly on February 5.
