Our economy faces difficult changes. People are facing tough times with many of our friends and neighbors out of work. We must do more to restart the economy and create jobs. Here are my priorities in the State Senate to create jobs:
*Invest in workforce development for displaced workers and students.
*Participate in public-private partnerships that expand local economic development efforts.
*Provide tax incentives for small businesses and job creators to help them grow.
*Provide regulatory stability and make the process easier to navigate.
*Recruit out of state companies to move here.
*Invest in our colleges and universities to build the best educated workforce in the country.
