U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson joined NFIB members today for a virtual visit as part of the NFIB Fly-In.
Ordinarily, NFIB members are invited to travel to Washington, D.C., to learn more about the issues affecting America’s small businesses and to meet with lawmakers and their staffs on Capitol Hill, but because of concerns over the novel coronavirus, this year’s event was held online.
“NFIB is uplifting and inspiring to me,” Wilson said. “I only regret that we can’t meet in person.”
Wilson talked with South Carolina small business owners about several issues critical to the state’s job creators including Paycheck Protection Program loans and legislation that would subject small business owners to costly new beneficial ownership reporting requirements. Wilson, who sits on the conference committee trying to hammer out an agreement on the Senate and House versions of the Fiscal Year 2021 National Defense Authorization Act, said he opposes the additional requirements on small businesses.
“On behalf of our members, I want to thank Congressman Wilson for making time to meet with our members and listen to their concerns about the issues affecting their ability to grow and create jobs,” NFIB State Director Ben Homeyer said.
