Travel and Tourism Committee Update

Your Feedback is Needed!

To allow fairgrounds to hold exhibitions and entertainment events during the fair's off season. 
S.2384 (Little)/A.5360 (Magee).

This bill would allow farmers associations that are organized to lease and maintain the grounds and structures where county fairs are held to also hold other events and exhibits or to store personal property when such property is available. This change in law is necessary as it has become recently burdensome to get the additional approval needed for these additional events from some local governments. To view the entire bill and the sponsor's bill memo please click here

Should The Business Council support, oppose or stay neutral on this issue?  If this affects you, how does it affect you?
