AFP-GA Applauds “Small Business and Job Creation” Committee in House

February 03, 2012

AFPF’s Economic Freedom Tour has made its way to the State House! The GA House of Representatives has chosen to take a hard look at what small businesses say they need in order to thrive and create jobs. They are taking the question on the road to businesses around the state, talking about onerous regulations that are stifling expansion. If you are a business owner in Georgia, they want to hearing from you! Click HERE to request an appearance.

The committee will hold a series of hearings with small business owners and operators so they can talk about ways the state can streamline the government bureaucracy that impedes their ability to do business efficiently. The House will take these recommendations and enact repealing legislation or enacting legislation that will improve the business climate in Georgia.

Representative Paulette Braddock (R-19) is on the committee, saying, “I am excited to be a part of this initiative – for Georgia to compete and continue to attract jobs, our state must strike a balance between the priorities of state government and the ability of small business to comply with reasonable regulations, and job growth must be our biggest priority in these difficult economic times”.

The first hearing will be held on Feb. 2 from 1-4 pm in room 406 in the Coverdell Legislative Office Building at the Capitol.
