One of the easiest, quickest, and most productive legislative reforms – in order to create jobs and develop the economy – would be to outlaw business license fees for startups.
It’s a no brainer to reward entrepeneurs wwilling to start new businesses, hire people, and serve our community.
The legislature of 2015 did the opposite. It imposed a number of new taxes on business and nearly doubled state license fees. I want to encourage people to start their own businesses, to live their own dreams,, to live their lives to the fullest. That is the essence of economic development.
The government should do everything it can encourage all businesses and stop treating the productive sector like an atm for government projects.
