Small Business is the life blood of the States economy the State Government is putting the pressure on owners with increased fee's and Regulation forcing people to be laid off or even businesses to shut down because it is unaffordable to operate in Rhode Island. We do not need to look far to find what works. IN New Hampshire they have 7% unemployment which is not good but compared to Rhode Island's 12% what is New Hampshire doing that Rhode Island is not? Less taxes, less regulation and less fees allows Business's to be more productive and hire and retain more employees. To fix the jobs crisis you need less government spending not more.
