The Green Industry Economic Impact Study

On Friday, February 7th, 2020 CNLA hosted a press conference at the State Capitol in Hartford to share the results of the Green Industry Economic Impact Study with state legislators. CNLA President Dustyn Nelson and Vice President Maggie Bridge, members of the Rural Caucus, State Commissioner of Agriculture Brian Hurlburt, and the Dean of the UConn College of Agriculture, Health, and Natural Resources Dr. Indrajeet Chaubey gave remarks to a room filled with lawmakers and members of the press. You can watch the press conference on our Facebook page.

Of the Impact Study and press conference, Dustyn Nelson said, “The Green Industry Economic Impact Study is important on many fronts. It shows that our industry is growing and has great opportunities for younger generations to make a career. Legislators need to know the impact our industry has as they are creating legislation.”
