It wasn’t too long ago that only 1 in 20 workers needed a license or a permit to pursue their chosen occupation. According to the Institute of Justice, today nearly 1 in 3 workers need a license to pursue their dream career. The Georgians First Commission, established by Governor Brian Kemp, is reviewing those state licensing policies and procedures with a goal to cut red tape and allow small businesses to grow and develop new innovative strategies. Here to speak more in-depth about the matter, is the Executive Director for the Georgians First Commission under the Office of Governor Kemp, Scott Hilton.
In this segment, we first learn more about Scott’s role and position in the governor’s office and what exactly the Georgians First Commission is. We also find out how the commission is working to help small businesses overcome the issues they face, and ultimately, thrive in their communities.
Scott also discusses the changes being made to the state licensing procedures and how they will affect the growth of small businesses. He then shares why it is important for business owners and entrepreneurs to share their problems with the state government.
