Mandating city use of state’s business licensing service

On Monday, the Senate passed SB 5656, which requires all cities issuing business licenses to participate in the state’s business licensing service (BLS). Before it passed, the bill was amended to require cities to join either BLS or a city-developed portal. AWC will continue to oppose this bill, which was referred to the House Local Government Committee. Cities with concerns about this proposal should contact members of the committee and ask them not to support it.
