Senator Spilka Invites MW Businesses and Others to a Forum on Economic Reform

February 25, 2010

On March 2, 2010, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Senator Karen Spilka will hold a MetroWest forum on Economic Reform and Senate Bill 2270 at Framingham State College. 

Senate Bill 2270 creates a new MetroWest Tourism and Visitors Bureau, designed to highlight the region while reinvesting its tourism-related revenue in MetroWest.  It also creates a new model of ‘one stop shopping’ for businesses wishing to grow, locate or remain in Massachusetts.  To provide a boost to small businesses, it reduces costs and creates a more favorable climate for entrepreneurship.  The bill also increases accountability and oversight of state agencies, quasi-publics and the state’s contracts with private organizations while eliminating out-of-date agencies and the duplication of services.

Senator Spilka, along with the Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies and the MetroWest Legislative Caucus, is holding a forum to give MetroWest businesses and other interested parties the opportunity to comment on this bill as it makes its way through the legislative process.  All are welcome to come and learn more about this initiative.

Please see the flyer for complete details.
