Douglas- Getting a small business started in Georgia just got easier. Governor Sonny Perdue signed an executive order in Douglas today that allows small business owners to cut through the red tape.

The order signed at the Third Annual Entrepreneur Summit requires state agencies to appoint a small business liaison to help new businesses with the paperwork they need to get going. Small business owners say that's the hardest part.

"Not knowing what all you need to do, cause in order to sell candy you've got to meet all the USDA license requirements, and you've got to have your building, you've got to have your labels just right and finding the right person to help you is difficult," said Cathy Beecher, Owner, Cathy's Sweets Inc.

Small business makes up 95 percent of Georgia's business community.
