Last week, NFIB members gathered in Orlando for an insider report on how business issues fared during the 2017 Legislative Session, which concluded in May.
Senator David Simmons, Representative Bob Cortes and Representative Mike Miller participated in the town hall-style forum, hosted by NFIB member Jerry Pierce at his business, Restaurant Equipment World.
NFIB members conveyed their concerns about important issues like healthcare reform and finding ways to lower workers’ comp rates on businesses, and heard what the lawmakers’ priorities are for the 2018 Legislative Session.
“Workers’ comp reform is the most important thing we should be working on. Right there with it is cutting the sales tax on commercial leases,” said Rep. Cortes.
The meeting was the latest in a series of town hall forums held by NFIB in an effort to open the dialogue between business owners and legislators as we head toward the next legislative session. Earlier this summer, NFIB held meetings in Boca Raton and Jacksonville, which you can read more about in this Clay Today article.
