The group, formed last year, is backing more than a dozen bills to promote entrepreneurship and job growth in the commonwealth. In 2012, caucus members hosted six town hall meetings across the state to pinpoint legislative priorities for business owners.
"So there were just a lot of issues that came up," said Delegate Chris Head, the caucus chair. "We gathered all of those, and then tried to distill it down because we saw consistent themes throughout the commonwealth. Then those were the things we wanted to be able to work on."
Proposed bills include tort reform legislation, as well as measures to reduce paperwork and encourage workforce development.
