Dear EfficientGov Subscriber,
In May and June, EfficentGov features elevated focus on economic development. Local governments tend to promote policies that help businesses grow, and create strategic action plans that offer incentives for growing industries and hot markets, like craft brewing. Of the 6,000 breweries that opened in 2017, 98 percent were small or independent brewers. It's a growing market nationwide, but it doesn't mean all brewers have equal opportunity. See our special report on how some states put the brakes on these entrepreneurs and the cities that want their businesses.

In Tech, we continue our smart cities special coverage and have new resources on drone pilot jobs and how to help businesses prepare for disasters like hurricanes.
