Senate passes Metzger bill to create state guides for small businesses

The state Senate unanimously passed a bill by Sen. Jen Metzger on Wednesday that will require the state to publish an annual online compliance guide for small businesses to update them on taxes, permits and any other changes in laws and regulations that concern them.

“Too often, small businesses are in the dark about regulations that affect them due to inadequate communication from state agencies, and could end up facing penalties that could have been avoided if they were better informed,” the Rosendale Democrat said in a statement. “This legislation will ensure that our small businesses have access to the information they need to comply.”

The bill was one of at least six geared toward small businesses that the Senate approved on Wednesday. Another would designate one employee in each of five state departments to serve as a liaison to small business owners when they interact with those agencies.
