The state legislature is calling a special session tomorrow. It’s a tale of two bills: Jobs and Jackson Labs.
Governor Malloy has unveiled a jobs plan. It’s focused on small business growth, startup investments for innovative firms, and streamlining the process for business to get things done.
These are all ideas that the governor and legislative leaders expect to get some level of bi-partisan support.
But that support’s not as evident in the case of the Jackson Labs deal - a major investment in a Maine-based company that’s supposed to spin off hundreds of jobs. But the plan might take too long to create those jobs and might cost too much, according to Republicans.
