The Business Council of Alabama will host an economic incentives roundtable in February, featuring some of the state’s most prominent lawmakers. 

Lt. Gov. Will Ainsworth, Senate President Greg Reed, House Speaker Nathaniel Ledbetter and Sen. Bobby Singleton will headline the event, which will outline the need for, and the positive impact of, economic incentives that drive business to the state. 

“Creating and maintaining a business climate that fosters job creation and retention is at the core of BCA’s mission,” said BCA President and CEO, Helena Duncan. “Renewal of the economic incentives outlined in the Alabama Jobs Act and Growing Alabama Credit is a top priority for BCA in the 2023 legislative session, and further serves the organization’s commitment to advocating for both businesses and the workforce in Alabama.”

The participating panel members will also be part of the Joint Legislative Committee On Renewing Economic Development Incentives. 

The forum will take place at 10 a.m. on Feb. 7, in the BCA auditorium. It will be streamed live on Facebook.
