FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) - State officials are seeking feedback from small business owners about regulations that need modifying in order to improve Maine's business climate.
The Maine Regulatory Fairness Board is holding a public form to listen to small business owners' concerns on Wednesday at the University of Maine at Farmington. Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap chairs the five-person board.
The group wants to hear from business owners and managers about state rules and regulations that may be hampering their growth and recommendations for how the state can enhance its laws to help businesses.
Forbes magazine recently ranked Maine as the worst state for doing business for the fourth year in a row, citing Maine's high corporate tax burden and poor job and economic forecast.
