The Montgomery County Small Business Association (MCSBA) advocated on behalf of our business community by testifying and contacting County officials in support of Montgomery County “Local Business Preference Program” Bill 25-19E. The Bill provides a 10% price preference in evaluating a bid or proposal from a local business on a contract awarded by Montgomery County. It is intended to bolster the County’s economic growth and support the creation and retention of employment opportunities within the County.

The County Council unanimously approved the Bill on June 23 and is in effect as of August 1, 2020.
