September 2012

This was a big year for the Joint Committee on Community Development and Small Business! Key legislative accomplishments included updates to the Community Preservation Act (CPA), adjustments to the “fair-share” health care contribution rate for small businesses, the passage of the Community Development Partnership Act tax credit program, and the creation of an official “one-stop shop” web portal for Massachusetts entrepreneurs and small businesses seeking information on state resources.
