Ainsworth continues leadership on Alabama small business issues

The Alabama Small Business Commission, a state panel led by Lt. Governor Will Ainsworth (R-AL) that recommends policies and legislation benefiting small businesses operating across the Yellowhammer State, will hold a public listening session in Guntersville on Monday, December 2.

The event will take place at the Guntersville Senior Center at 10:00 a.m., and members of the public are encouraged to attend and testify.

In a statement, Ainsworth said, “As a small business owner, I have firsthand experience in dealing with the obstacles that government bureaucracy, nonsensical tax policies, cumbersome employment laws, and other factors place in the path of job creators.”

“The Alabama Small Business Commission was created in order to remove those obstacles and provide small business owners with the tools they need to prosper, grow, and hire new workers,” he continued. “I encourage any small business owner with concerns or ideas to attend this listening session and share their thoughts with the commission.”

This continues Ainsworth’s forward-thinking leadership on small business issues, including workforce development.

State Rep. Danny Garrett (R-Trussville), speaking at a recent Yellowhammer News Shapers event, outlined some of the impressive work the Alabama Small Business Commission is accomplishing.
