Hosemann seeks input to reform state’s business laws
Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann wants your input on how to reform Mississippi’s business laws.
The past few years, Hosemann has assembled study groups populated by representatives from almost every industry that does business in Mississippi to kick around ideas. Work done by the groups has led to the passage of legislation like the SMART Business Act, which passed last session and offers a 25 percent rebate for Mississippi companies that contract with state colleges and universities for research.
Past sessions have also included reform to Mississippi’s statutes regarding LLCs, securities, copper theft and corporate trademarks. In all, more than 90 percent of the legislation Hosemann backed has passed.
Hosemann has already put together his business study groups that will work in advance of the 2014 session that starts in January. The groups started meeting this month.
Hosemann’s office has also set up a page on his official website to gather ideas. The digital surveys are designed to complement the work done by the business study groups. The page does not restrict the number or scope of ideas users can submit.
