Montgomery County councilmember Will Jawando recently introduced the Local Small Business Reserve Program and Direct Purchase Enhancement Act [Bill 39-19]. The goal of the bill is to open up more opportunities for local small businesses including non-profits.
Officials say 95% of businesses in Montgomery County have 50 or less employees and this legislation is aimed to help them thrive.
In Montgomery County, 95% of businesses have 50 or fewer employees, and nonprofits employ over 10% of our workforce.
With that in mind, I introduced the Local Small Business Reserve Program (LSBRP) and Direct Purchase Enhancement Act. https://t.co/zus72JguMC
