Some reassuring things were said at NFIB’s Virtual Fly-In Event last week
CARSON CITY, Nev., June 28, 2021—NFIB Nevada, the state’s leading small-business association, today thanked Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto for meeting with its members at their Virtual Fly-In event June 23.
Every year, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s largest small-business association, holds a Fly-In event to put Main Street entrepreneurs in direct communication with Congressional representatives who are crafting legislation as the event is being held. This year’s event could not have been better timed as the Senate and House are in a swirl of legislative activity not seen in a long time.
“We know how extremely busy Congress is right now, so we really appreciated Sen. Cortez Masto carving out some time to meet with NFIB’s Nevada membership,” said Randi Thompson, NFIB’s Nevada state director. “She not only provided some very informative background on some historic issues being debated right now, but also said some reassuring things to the small-business owners who are the first to show up for work, the last to leave, and the last to get paid.”
A fuller story of the meeting with Cortez-Masto can be read here. Two takeaways from it:
- “The conference call was held at a time when Congress is aswirl in a blizzard of legislation, a lot of it potentially harmful for small business. So, it was reassuring to hear the senator say, ‘I’ve told the leadership I really can’t support something that harms family farms and businesses.’
- “NFIB Nevada State Director Randi Thompson thanked the senator for her prior work on net-loss-carryforward legislation and praised her for being a friend of small business.”
