The NFIB Texas office is hosting a series of calls this week with members of Congress as part of NFIB’s first Virtual Fly-In.
Ordinarily, NFIB members gather in Washington, D.C., each summer to learn more about the issues affecting America’s small businesses and to visit lawmakers and their staffs on Capitol Hill, but because of concerns over the novel coronavirus, this year’s event was held online.
NFIB members from Texas met virtually on Tuesday with the office of Sen. John Cornyn and are scheduled to meet on Thursday with Reps. Dan Crenshaw and Chip Roy.
Roy said, “As a freshmen member, I’ve worked hard to make sure our Central Texas businesses stay afloat during the coronavirus pandemic. I authored and Congress passed my bipartisan bill – the Paycheck Protection Flexibility Act – that helped many small businesses in our district keep their doors open and their employees on the payroll. I’m continuing to work to ensure Congress provides our restaurants, live music venues, salons, and all our small businesses the help they need so we can get Texas and the United States back to the greatest economy in our lifetime.”
