Small Business

Arkansas is home to some of the world’s biggest and most profitable corporations, but the state’s economy is still not working for every community, particularly in rural areas. As governor, I will reject any approaches to development that focus exclusively on Little Rock and Northwest Arkansas while leaving rural communities behind. Average, hard-working Arkansans are the key to our state’s future, but under the Hutchinson administration, starting a small business comes with too much risk and not enough support. As governor, I will help innovators secure the capital they need to launch their businesses and expand, provide them with affordable health care and business training resources, and call on them first when the government contracts with private firms.
