AUGUSTA, Maine — State officials say nearly 500 Maine business have registered for the 2012 Maine Business Survey just two weeks after it began collecting data.

The survey is part of Gov. Paul LePage’s plan to learn more about the needs of businesses and their take on Maine’s business climate.

LePage says the information that’s collected will have a bearing on future economic policy decisions that will impact businesses.

Businesses that have filled out the survey so far say their concerns revolve around regulation, health care costs, access to capital and having a well-trained workforce.

The survey can be found on the governor’s website .
