NFIB Supports Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association’s Plan
The state’s leading small business advocate, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), announced its support for the Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association’s (MRLA) Comprehensive Reintegration Plan for the Hospitality Industry.
“The hospitality professionals at the MRLA have worked hard to offer up a sensible plan for getting Michigan’s most beleaguered segment of small business back to work,” said NFIB State Director Charlie Owens. “The plan relies on the metrics being used by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services for making pandemic related decisions.”
Owens said that giving business owners a clear benchmark for making decisions is something that they have been asking for since the start of the economic shutdowns in the spring of last year.
The Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association released details of the proposed plan this morning as a clear, metric-driven solution for elected officials that will enable hotel and restaurant operators to remain in business and restore jobs.
