In Conjunction with the Job Creators Network, Sen. Albers Introduces Georgia Legislation to Protect Small Businesses

Legislation will reduce the number of overly burdensome regulations

Atlanta – Today Senator John Albers (R-Roswell), in conjunction with the Job Creators Network, introduced the “Bring Small Businesses Back Georgia Regulatory Reform Act.” The bill aims to protect and promote the growth of small businesses throughout the state of Georgia.

“I am thrilled to introduce legislation that will bolster the environment for creativity and business growth” said Sen. Albers in a press release sent out Wednesday. “By reducing regulations and costs to operate a business, we will increase profits and hiring for small businesses. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Senate and House to bring small businesses back to Georgia.”

The legislation is designed to remove unnecessary and intrusive government regulations that impede the growth and job creation potential of small businesses. More specifically, it requires a cost-benefit analysis to be performed for any new rule implemented by state government officials. If a rule is deemed unnecessary, two other already existing rules must be removed. Additionally, laws impacting public safety will not be considered.

“Senator Albers understands how small business growth and economic prosperity go hand and hand” said Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of the Job Creators Network. “By bringing the fight to the state level, our advocacy can have a larger impact on small businesses operating in Georgia. In the future, this bill can be replicated for state legislatures across the country.”
