VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Georgia Chamber of Commerce is working with local chambers to educate small business owners about how health care reform will affect them.

Tuesday and Thursday the Valdosta - Lowndes County chamber is hosting a webinar for local business owners. Many owners say they're concerned about new penalties and regulations, as well as how the new healthcare care law may affect their bottom line. Chamber officials say they're working to ease those concerns.

"There are a lot of different methods that business owners can still offer health insurance to their employees at an affordable cost. So the very first step is just educating yourself, and there are many different resources out there," said Marketing Director Heather Teter.
