Robin Carnahan on Corporations

 


Put middle class ahead of "too big to fail"

Q: What would you do to reduce unemployment?

A: I have been fighting for Missouri families and have a plan to fix our economy and create jobs by:

  1. Putting the middle class first, not "too big to fail".
  2. Focusing on small businesses, not corporations that send jobs overseas.
  3. Ending wasteful spending.
Missouri families continue to struggle after 14 years of Congressman Blunt's failed leadership that let Wall Street run wild and sent tens of thousands of jobs overseas.

Red Tape Reduction Act: biennial corporate registration

Secretary of State Robin Carnahan today announced that the "Red Tape Reduction Act" goes into effect on January 1st. Beginning next week, businesses will have the option of filing corporate registration reports with the Secretary of State's Office every two years rather than annually. In addition, the "Red Tape Reduction Act" will allow businesses to change the date of their filing to match tax and other paperwork deadlines.

"I'm proud to have championed this law to make it easier for Missouri's more than 400,000 businesses," Carnahan said. "My office has saved businesses over $10 million in reduced fees since 2005, and I will continue to work to help small businesses grow and succeed in our state."

The "Red Tape Reduction Act" furthers Carnahan's commitment to increasing efficiency and streamlining the way businesses interact with government. In 2007, Carnahan launched the Missouri Business Portal, as a "one stop shop" for businesses to file reports or acquire licenses.
