ON WEDNESDAY

Business owners will learn how health care law impacts companies

Governor Haley Barbour on Wednesday, Aug. 4, will host a forum on the new health care mandates for business owners. The meeting, which is open to the public, will be from 9:30 a.m. to noon at the Jackson Convention Center in downtown Jackson.

Anyone interested in attending is asked to register at the Mississippi Economic Council web site, www.msmec.com. The free event is sponsored by the Mississippi Economic Council, Mississippi Manufacturers Association, National Federation of Independent Business and the Mississippi Hospitality and Restaurant Association.

State and national business experts will present an overview of the health care legislation signed by President Obama earlier this year.
