Although two-thirds of state businesses showed a profit last year, fewer than half plan to make job-creating investments here in Connecticut, according to a new survey released today.

Produced by CBIA and the accounting, tax, and consulting firm BlumShapiro, the 2016 Survey of Connecticut Businesses examines the near-term outlook, export activities, workforce trends, technology investments, and legislative priorities of the state’s business community.

CBIA is Connecticut’s largest business organization, with thousands of member companies, small and large, representing a diverse range of industries from every part of the state.

The House has approved a bipartisan bill that would allow families of Sept. 11 victims to sue the government of Saudi Arabia. The measure was approved by voice vote Friday. Passage of the legislation puts Congress on a collision course with President Barack Obama on the eve of the 15th anniversary of the attacks. The Senate passed the bill in May by voice vote despite vehement objections from Saudi Arabia, a key U.S. ally in the Middle East. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers from 9/11 were Saudi nationals. The White House has signaled that Obama would veto the legislation over concerns about exposing Americans overseas to legal risks. The Obama administration cautions that if U.S. citizens can take the Saudis to court, then a foreign country could in turn sue the United States.
