Governor Parnell Signs Legislation Helping Alaska Businesses
July 31, 2014, Anchorage, Alaska – Governor Sean Parnell simplified Alaska business license applications by signing House Bill 32 (HB 32).
HB 32, sponsored by Rep. Mia Costello, allows multiple kinds of businesses to be conducted under one business license. This will streamline the application process for business licensing, making it more efficient and cost-effective for Alaskans.
“This is common sense legislation that gets government out of the way so Alaska entrepreneurs can prosper,” Governor Parnell said. “I appreciate Representative Mia Costello’s work on this bill that was supported by many Alaska business owners.”
Governor Parnell was joined by small business owners, members of the Alaska State Chamber of Commerce, National Federation of Independent Business and members of the Legislature at the bill signing.
