While there are many great things about our state it's disturbing that our unemployment levels exceed the federal rate. We need to foster a more business friendly environment by simplifying regulatory compliance, phasing out corporate tax rates, and providing further tax credit incentives for employers who hire the unemployed.
As a small business owner I realize that small businesses are the bedrock of our economy. In fact, 80% of new jobs in GA are created through small businesses. We must be more proactive at creating a business friendly environment that encourages the start up of new businesses and attracts high paying jobs to Georgia.
