businesses, having businesses come into our community and grow in our
communities is a very good thing for everybody," said Chris Miller, of the Adrian

turn to the community for crowd funding.
who has a 401K or a retirement plan, they may want to take 5 percent or 10

get to invest in their own communities. Right now, you and I could not invest

do that. And this would give you a mechanism to do that."
bill passed 108-0 in the House this week. Now it moves on to the Senate.
