Many people move to Arizona because of our climate. They know this is one of the greatest places in the country to live. Our business climate should be the same. We need to work to create a business climate that will not only enable current businesses to grow and prosper, which will result in new jobs and an expanded economy, but will also draw corporations and entrepreneurs to Arizona. If we create the right climate new businesses will come. This will grow our economy and raise revenues for the State without raising taxes.
We have passed jobs bills and tax reform that is already working to strengthen the business climate in Arizona. We can see this with the number of jobs that have grown in Arizona, which has been attributed by experts as a result of the legislation we passed.
As a former business owner I'm also excited about a bill I wrote and sponsored that will simplify sales tax collection for any business working in the non-program cities of Arizona. It will provide a simple, quick, and money saving way to file these taxes, which benefits both the businesses and the cities. The easier and cheaper it is for businesses to operate the more money they'll have for expansion and job growth.
