SB 2 “The FAST Act – Fairness, Accountability, Simplification, and Transparency – Empowering Our Small Businesses to Succeed”

Voted on Wednesday February 28, 2018

Michael Caldwell's thoughts

This legislation requires state entities who issue permits, certificates or licenses to establish a fee schedule & provide a timeline for processing of applications.

Original concerns before the bill was amended to remove counties and cities:
"This will incentivize (the dramatic majority of entities) who are currently turning these around in perfectly reasonable time periods to set excessive time periods. For a few bad actors, I worry we’ll be incentivizing the wrong behavior out of all the rest."

After locals were removed, I was able to support the bill.
