NFIB’s Small Business Challenge, which kicked off this summer, is a national campaign that invites members of Congress to spend a day at a small business in their district. The program allows lawmakers to experience firsthand the challenges small business owners face, including day-to-day management, compliance and tax issues. Through the program, NFIB hopes to help lawmakers grasp the true impact of their decisions in Washington, D.C.
Last week, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn accepted the NFIB Small Business Challenge and spent some time with Austin-based Rebath, first assisting in the installation of a new shower for a homeowner and then taking a tour of the business and participating in a round table discussion with about a dozen small business owners from the area.
Our many thanks to Senator Cornyn for accepting our challenge, and to the owners of Rebath for helping us with such a successful event!
