GREENVILLE – Tyeis Baker-Baumann will travel to Washington, DC, to engage lawmakers on the impact federal regulations and other government policies are having on small businesses. Baker-Baumann is one of over 200 small-business owners participating in the National Federation of Independent Business’ Small Business Summit, May 14-16.
“I believe we need to communicate with our lawmakers about the ways in which government policies affect the day-to-day operations of businesses like mine,” said Baker-Baumann. “There is a lot at stake when government policies and regulations are put in place so I appreciate the opportunity to meet with lawmakers and to talk with them about how their decisions can affect our ability to grow and hire.”
While in Washington, small-business owners will meet with US House Speaker John Boehner, as well as other Members of Congress and influential policymakers to discuss burdensome taxes, complex regulations, costly healthcare mandates, and other issues affecting their businesses. Additionally, they will attend speaking engagements and seminars headlined by notable media personalities such as NBC’s Meet the Press host, David Gregory.
Vice President/Executive Director of NFIB/Ohio Roger R. Geiger added, “Our members are working each day to grow their businesses and create jobs in our state. These are the folks our lawmakers need to hear from when they are considering new regulations, taxes or healthcare policies. We believe it is vitally important for elected officials to have the opportunity to meet with small-business owners. That is why we host the Small Business Summit and that is why we do so much locally to bring together lawmakers and business owners.”Rebsco Inc. is a design/build contractor and custom fabrication company located in Greenville.
