Connecticut will set up a small business hotline and take a handful of other pro-business steps, following Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's signing of a slew of bills Friday.

The new hotline will be set up by the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) and provide customized information and guidance to entrepreneurs and small business owners across the state on how to start and develop a business.

Scheduled to be implemented by Oct. 1, the new law will also identify networking resources and access to technical and financial assistance from state and quasi-public agencies, according to analysis of the bill. A nonprofit may assist this work, the new law states.

Malloy also signed into law bills that will:

  • Create a process to continuously analyze state economic and business conditions (Senate Bill 1058);
  • Set up a taskforce to study ways to develop, expand and improve Connecticut's insurance industry workforce (Senate Bill 928); and
  • Establish a manufacturer's permit for farm breweries (House Bill 5928).

Those three bills go into effect immediately.
