Business News Roundup, Jan. 14, 2022

A White House appeal for businesses to proceed with COVID-19 vaccine requirements, some companies’ plans to scrap such action after a Supreme Court ruling, the first meeting of a revived SBA council, and Connecticut lawmakers’ plans for business support in the coming legislative session are among the top business news items this morning.


Following the Supreme Court’s rejection of an Occupational Safety and Health Administration rule that would have required businesses with 100 or more employees to establish COVID-19 vaccination policies, President Joe Biden is urging employers to “do the right thing” and establish their own vaccine requirements. Biden said one-third of Fortune 100 companies have already taken this step.

Some corporate leaders are planning to take the opposite action. A Wall Street Journal article looks into how some corporate leaders are reversing their plans to implement vaccine policies after the Supreme Court decision.

The U.S. Small Business Administration held the first meeting of its reconvened Council on Underserved Communities. The group will make recommendations on policies and programs to help underserved entrepreneurs access SBA programs.


A group of state senators speaking to the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce say they will focus their efforts in the coming legislative session on options for supporting Connecticut businesses, including tax relief and growing the bioscience sector. The Connecticut General Assembly convenes on Feb. 9.
