Lt. Governor’s Dover Events for November 14: Small Business and School Breakfast

Statewide Small Business Advisory Committee Meets
Speaks at Delaware School Nutrition Meeting about School Breakfast 

DOVER – Lieutenant Governor Matt Denn’s Small Business Advisory Committee began meeting in January of this year about a variety of issues that impact small businesses.  Improvements to the state’s small business loan programs, providing better information to small businesses about requirements of the Affordable Care Act, controlling workers compensation premiums, and state and county regulations are just a few of the topics that have been discussed.  The Committee’s 17 members represent a variety of small businesses throughout the state.

During tomorrow’s meeting – the last of 2013 – the discussion of how to make credit available to more small businesses will continue with John Fleming and Michael Rossi of the state Small Business Administration’s office and a representative of a local lender.  The committee will likely decide on recommendations that can be made to increase access to credit for small businesses.

A further discussion of the Affordable Care Act and its impact on small business is also on the agenda.  The meetings rotate between Wilmington and Dover, are posted in advance and open to the public.

Tomorrow afternoon, the Lt. Governor will be talking at the business meeting of the Delaware School Nutrition House of Delegates about trying to expand school breakfast to every elementary school classroom in the state.
