One of the Mountain States Policy Center’s top priorities is to protect the ability of small businesses to thrive. This is why we are happy to join with state leaders, trade groups, and the Idaho Department of Commerce on June 9th for the fourth annual #SupportLocalGems. As explained by U.S. Senator Risch:
“The Support Local Gems initiative is an all-day celebration of Idaho’s small businesses.”
State leaders and MSPC know the critical importance that small businesses play for our economic success:
“It’s impossible to measure just how substantially Idaho’s small businesses contribute to our state’s economy, our workforce, our communities, and our way of life in the Gem State,” said Senator Risch. “I am tremendously grateful to these businesses for all they do. On Friday, June 9th, join me and celebrate the local gems that strengthen Idaho communities.”
“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, driving innovation and job creation. The State of Idaho is proud that years of back-to-back tax relief and historic investments into workforce and infrastructure have strengthened our business climate. Idaho’s small businesses are beloved members of our communities and deserve our support,” said Governor Little.
Here is how you can participate in Idaho:
“On Friday, June 9, dine at your favorite restaurant or order takeout, shop in person or online at a local retailer, purchase a gift card, write a positive review for your favorite local business, or just say ‘thank you’ to a business in your community for all that they do.”
Thank you to all the entrepreneurs and their families that make the sacrifices necessary to grow our economy and provide the important services we need. At MSPC we’ll work with you to help remove barriers that may stand in the way of you achieving your American dream.
