Sen. Judson Hill (R-Marietta) has been selected to chair the Senate Entrepreneur in Residence Study Committee. Over the next several months, this study committee will identify inefficient and overlapping programs within government negatively impacting entrepreneurs trying to start or expand a business, then report its findings on or before Dec. 31, 2014.
The Entrepreneur in Residence Study Committee was created by the passing of Senate Resolution 820 during the 2014 legislative session. As stated in the resolution, the committee consists of six members of the Senate, including the chairs of the Senate’s standing committees on Science and Technology and Economic Development in ex-officio status. The committee will focus on finding where government regulations are an unnecessary obstacle for the starting or operation of a small business in Georgia.
Through an Entrepreneur in Residence program, the committee will look for successful small business owners and operators to serve as a mentor and advisor to other small business owners throughout the state.
Sen. Hill, who also serves as chairman of the Finance Committee, represents the 32nd Senate District, which includes portions of Cobb and Fulton counties.
