Bertino-Tarrant cuts red tape for small businesses

redtapeSmall businesses often face too much red tape when dealing with the state.

With HB 3887, State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood) hopes to make that process as efficient as possible and help improve the state’s business climate.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our communities,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “The state needs to make it easier for them to create jobs and improve the economy.”

HB 3887, which Bertino-Tarrant is sponsoring in the Senate, is designed to identify and eliminate state regulations that are unreasonable or overly burdensome to small businesses.

Under Bertino-Tarrant’s legislation, state agencies would complete an initial review of rules, regulations and processes related to small businesses within one year of the legislation becoming law. Subsequent reviews would take place every five years thereafter.

According to the Small Business Administration, small businesses employ 48 percent of the private-sector labor force in Illinois.

HB 3887 passed out of the Senate today with bipartisan support, and now goes to the Governor for approval.
