Texas State Representative Larry Gonzales has introduced a bill to the House that calls for the creation of entrepreneur-in-residence programs at most state agencies. A similar bill introduced by State Senator John Carona passed in the Senate on March 13.
Sen. John Carona said that “An ongoing challenge in state government is making sure it stays modern and relevent. This bill would allow the state to tap the resources of the real world and coud prove invaluable to Texas' interests.”
The House Committee on Economic and Small Business Development will be discussing the entrepreneur-in-residence programs this week.
