JCBL 2018 Legislative Priorities

Fostering a Strong, Competitive Business Climate

The JCBL will advocate for:

  1. Creating new, and defending existing, tax incentives for economic development and urban renewal in Jefferson County, including the jobs tax credit, tax increment financing and other important tools.
  2. A balanced litigation environment where business owners don’t live under continual threat of meritless lawsuits from employees or plaintiffs looking to force a quick settlement.
  3. Legislation that ensures a competitive, viable, affordable and accessible health care system and opposition to mandates or other legislation that creates additional expense and burden on employers and employees who pay for that system.
  4. Pro-energy development policies for both traditional and non-traditional resources.
