Agreement reached on Jobs Session agenda

Republican and Democratic leadership have reached agreement of what will be included in the upcoming special session on jobs, the Malloy Administration announced Thursday.

While no bill has been released with the specifics, a powerpoint previewing some of what will be included has been released. It includes $50 million in small business loans, increases job creation tax credits from $200 to $500 a month for each job created within the $20 million already appropriated, reduce the annual $250 business registration tax to an every-other-year registration at the same cost, and $5 million for boiler/furnace replacements for non-profit providers.

That agreement does not yet include the Jackson Laboratory deal.
