Legislature: Pass the Cottage Law in Connecticut

    1. Lara Salvati Kendall
    2. Petition by

      Lara Salvati Kendall

      Plantsville, United States

After getting laid off 3 1/2 years ago I became a full time stay-at-home mom and discovered my passion and skill for baking/cake decorating. Many people have told me I should start my own business, but that is very expensive and well out of my means. My husband works 2 jobs, is very overworked and we are barely making ends meet. We will soon be out of money. I need to bring in an income, but it is also very important to us for me to be here for our children. So I would like to get the Cottage Law passed so I can earn an income, help support our family and still be able to care for our children. Thank you.

To:
Senator Markley, Senate
Pass the Cottage Law in Connecticut

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The state does not have the right to tell people what they can do in their own house. Preventing people from doing this only enhances the power of those already in business by reducing the competition.

      Every individual should have the opportunity to work out of their own home.

      I think it is important if a Mom chooses to stay at home with her kids, she should be able to bring in an income. A lot of families out there need all the money they can get.
