Jeremy Gray, Representative (Auburn, AL)

IDEA CATAGORY: Jobs and Entrepreneurship

Investing in Innovation in Alabama

Legislation to establish the Alabama Innovation Corporation, sponsored by Alabama Representative Jeremy Gray, passed unanimously in the Senate this week, after having been previously passed by the state House. Gray, a member of the new class of NewDEAL Leaders, has led the effort to launch this new public-private partnership that would support statewide entrepreneurship, rural businesses, research and development, and tech training for workers. The bill now returns to the house for a final vote before heading to the Governor’s desk. Read more about Rep. Gray’s bill here.
