The SBAC Heads to Springfield to Fight for the Small Business Community

The SBAC Heads to Springfield to Fight for the Small Business Community

Newsletter Header

The Small Business Advocacy Council (SBAC) is heading to the capitol on Tuesday, November 15, 2022.  We will be focused on procuring relief for local chambers of commerce devastated by the pandemic during the short legislative session this fall.  It is imperative our policymakers support the local chambers which supported small businesses throughout the pandemic.

We will also be working to pass House Bill 3215.  This bill will support small businesses struggling to hire employees, foster opportunities for formerly incarcerated individuals, improve public safety, and reduce the costs of incarceration.  This legislation will provide for wage subsidies for businesses that hire formerly incarcerated individuals and an increased tax credit for small businesses that hire returning citizens.

The best way for the small business community to have a seat at the table is to be in the room!  Look for updates from Springfield on our website and social media this Tuesday.
