To address the burden small businesses face, Sen. John Albers will work with his colleagues to introduce three pieces of legislation. They will aim to reduce the regulatory burden levied onto small businesses, encourage their growth, and increase customer service.
The events are part of JCN's Bring Small Businesses Back campaign which consists of a nationwide bus tour to hear the challenges that real local small businesses are facing. Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of JCN, will present on this campaign as well as JCN's Employer to Employee (E2E) education program.
"Our goal is to educate small businesses on what is being done on the federal and state level to promote their growth and success," said Sen. Albers. "Small businesses have the burden of dealing with numerous regulations and laws. A priority for me this upcoming session will be to address any burdens or issues small businesses face. I will work with the Job Creators Network and my colleagues to cut down regulations and to provide incentives for small business owners who hire new staff. We will also work to create a one-stop shop for all businesses when it comes to permit processing and applications. I look forward to working with JCN, my colleagues and small businesses around the state."
"The Bring Small Businesses Back campaign is working to unleash the power of free enterprise," said Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of the Job Creators Network. "With the help of Georgia lawmakers, such as Sen. Albers, we can get the economy working again for everyone in both Georgia and the entire country. Together, we can bring small businesses back."
The events will focus on finding solutions to the problems most commonly cited by small business owners: overregulation, overtaxation, and lack of access to credit. With small businesses in Georgia making up 97 percent of all employers in the state, it is vital for their concerns to be heard.
In a nationwide poll of small businesses commissioned by JCN earlier this year, two-thirds of respondents identified overtaxation as preventing their businesses from thriving. Three-fifths said the same about overregulation. As a result, the survey also found that only one in five small business owners plan to hire additional employees over the next year, and only around one-quarter believe that doing business over the next year will be easier than the previous one.
