Somers 2017-02-15 GAE Testimony (5 of 5)
Sen. Heather Somers appearing before the Government, Administration and Elections Committee Wednesday on SB 194, a bill that would require all state agencies to set a 60-day time limit to respond to applications with their agencies. Somers said the bill is designed to get both the agency and applicants on mutually accountable schedule. Often, Somers said, unreasonable delays in the application can hold back a potential business from hiring or expanding.
