State Representative John Beard says he's proud of his support of a bill that provides an additional $100,000 for Small Business Development Centers throughout Iowa. The centers provide one on one counseling and support to small businesses at 15 locations across Iowa.
The bill also expands the statewide "MyEntereNet" program, which is aimed at helping firms most likely to create jobs in Iowa while improving access to services and capital for hundreds of other Iowa companies.
The bill continues support for over 55 Workforce Development Centers across Iowa that help the unemployed find work and job training assistance. The centers also provide services to employers looking to hire employees.
The bill has been passed by the State Assembly and now goes to the State Senate.
