This week, I chaired a subcommittee which unanimously passed SF 155, a bill which would cut government red tape to allow William Burt (pictured) to operate a mobile barbershop and serve underserved populations across the state.  Mr. Burt brought his mobile barbershop to the Capitol this week, and I was honored to take a tour.  I can’t wait to get this bill through the Senate, over to the House, and onto Governor Reynolds’ desk for signature so innovative entrepreneurs like Mr. Burt can operate a successful business.
