Report: Here’s what Louisiana small businesses want from state government
A group of executives have been hashing out for several months priorities and goals meant to improve the small business climate in Louisiana, focusing on access to capital, support programs, occupational licensing and regulatory policy.
The culmination of the Louisiana Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council’s effort is a draft report expected to hit Gov. John Bel Edwards’ desk in the coming weeks.
The board includes 16 business and government leaders from across the state who have been meeting with the Louisiana Economic Development department to develop recommendations for the governor, some of them on business wish lists for a long time.
