It seems like just yesterday Jodi was talkin' up the many wonders of a CTStaycation. I don't know where all that enthusiasm went, but with it went the entirety of the state's tourism budget. What was once a $4.3 million marketing fund is now a $1 placeholder. It is estimated that tourism brings in $14 billion to the state annually. The cut extends through 2011.
It looks like we here at CT Scenic really have our work cut out for us. Luring $14 billion worth of commerce into CT is no easy task. Once people realize they might meet us if they come here, the business should start pouring in. Jodi, we will be expecting a $1 check made out to "CT Scenic".
