I cannot attend but I wanted to suggest that the state create a separate category of business - microbusiness - so that students and young entrepreneurs, the disabled who may need to put their newly incorporated businesses on hold, the inexperienced trying to gain experience, etc, can have the advantages of incorporating and hands onlearning without having to pay an $800/yr tax. Basically, a category of business similar to the reason we needed small claims courts - excluding smaller entities from the game because of financial thresholds unnecessarily hurts the little guy in the economy and ultimately the state.
