NFIB and Business
Groups Host Telephone Town Hall with Ohio Senator

Washington, DC (May 6,
2015)
– Today, the National
Federation of Independent Business
and other business groups hosted a
telephone town hall for members in the state of Ohio with Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH). Business owners and the senator discussed
a wide range of issues including tax reform, debt and deficits, regulations and
trade.

“I was glad to have the opportunity to talk today about some
of the important issues that have a great impact on small businesses. Like many
NFIB members, I too know what it takes to run a small business,” said Portman. “But many workers
and business owners are finding it harder to succeed in today’s environment. To
turn this economy around, Washington needs to tear down barriers and remove
obstacles so that more small business owners can succeed in meeting their
goals. Washington can help by reforming regulatory policies and our tax code, while
providing more access to affordable health care and workforce training.”

Over 6,000 members from the various associations joined in
the call. The groups sponsoring the forum included the NFIB, National
Association of Manufacturers, National Retail Federation, Associated Builders
and Contractors, Associated General Contractors and the Business Industry
Political Action Committee.

“We appreciate
Senator Portman spending time speaking with the Ohio small business community
today. He has a track record of standing up for our members in areas such as
regulations, taxes and healthcare. Members of NFIB are truly thankful for him
taking the time to listen to their concerns so they can continue to operate and
grow their businesses,” said Roger. R.
Geiger, vice president and executive director of NFIB/Ohio
