Ron Stollings on Budget & Economy
Promote economic growth during coronavirus pandemic
Stollings said the state's cuts to public health departments are proving to be costly during the pandemic. He said the governor should be focused on effectively allocating federal resources that will be offered to the state government. "I think
the first dollar out should be given to our small businesses and entrepreneurs," Stollings said. Stollings also said the governor should be prepared to utilize the National Guard to help combat the crisis.
Stollings said he would promote economic growth by prioritizing small businesses, supporting entrepreneurs and expanding the state's technology sector. "This is something we have been working on
in the Senate for some time," Stollings said. Stollings also said he would establish a governor's office of grants and partnerships to take advantage of funding for recovery efforts following the coronavirus crisis.
