House Work Group Explores Improving State’s Business Climate

A work group formed by the House of Delegates has been meeting with businesses across the State to discuss ways to improve the State’s business climate.  The group is co-chaired by Delegates John Bohanan and Galen Clagett.

As reported by The Daily Record:

“We have a bad reputation, especially when it comes to Virginia,” Bohanan told a meeting of economic development professionals at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center in California. “We need to take a good honest assessment.”

He said lawmakers were soliciting thoughts from business leaders on how to improve Maryland’s business climate in order to attract and retain businesses in the state. The group will then take recommendations back to the 141-member House.
