Danbury state lawmakers took a tour of some local businesses yesterday.
The bipartisan delegation visited Hologic. Officials with the manufacturer say the group has been instrumental in passing legislation that helps women access their latest 3D mammography technology. Representative Raghib Allie-Brennan, who worked in radiology for 7 years, says the technology offers faster and more accurate screenings.
Hologic employees were joined yesterday by Senator Julie Kushner and Representatives David Arconti, Raghib Allie-Brennan, Stephen Harding and Ken Gucker.
Allie-Brennan visited Danbury-based Praxair with some of his colleagues yesterday. The worldwide industrial gases company has over 500 employees in Connecticut.
As an energy intensive company, Allie-Brennan says one of their biggest challenges is the cost of energy in the state. He is Vice Chair of the Energy & Technology Committee and wants to work to address this issue in the upcoming session.
