NEWS | Proposed Legislation Would Support AI Training

Senators are considering new skills and training on AI for small-business owners.

JUNE 12 | Last week, Senate Commerce Committee Chair Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and fellow committee member, Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) introduced bipartisan legislation that aims to equip small businesses with artificial intelligence training tools.

The Small Business Artificial Intelligence Training and Toolkit Act of 2024 would require the Commerce Department to create tangible resources for small businesses to help with emerging AI technologies.

Several Members of Congress are seeking to craft regulations that boost AI’s potential and protect small-business owners from harm.

A number of recent studies suggest that small businesses across industries, such as cybersecurity and health care, have been embracing AI to assist with marketing, research, customer service, and other tasks.
