Mandating city use of the state’s Business Licensing Service

This session, cities have been opposing SB 5656, which originally required cities to participate in the state’s Business Licensing Service (BLS) and was subsequently amended to give cities a choice between BLS and a city-developed licensing portal. While this bill appears to be dead for the session, the provisions of the bill were added to another bill, HB 1568, as it was voted out of the Senate Ways & Means Committee.

AWC will continue to oppose this unnecessary mandate.
