Organizations from around the state are showing their support for the CT20x17 campaign and its framework of commonsense policies. They recognize that despite making progress in developing a talented future workforce, reducing energy costs, and cutting government red tape, our economic recovery has not kept pace with the national and regional economies. It is critical that we change this trajectory and unlock Connecticut’s enormous potential. Moving forward we face significant challenges, but they can be overcome if we work together.
