At the end of last week, U.S. Ross Spano, R-Fla., highlighted the importance of chambers of commerce to help the economy rebound from the coronavirus pandemic.
Spano, who sits on the U.S. House Small Business Committee, joined U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, who leads Republicans on the committee, on a video conference call with six regional chambers of commerce.
“As soon as our nation is ready to turn the page on COVID-19, there is no one better positioned or best attuned to our local business needs than our local chambers of commerce. I want to thank Ranking Member Chabot for taking the time to speak with our community’s business leaders,” said Spano. “We have to ensure that we keep pushing forward pro-business, pro-growth regulations to kickstart our economy again and ensure a more prosper future for our district, state and country.”
“As our nation continues to feel the impact of COVID-19, small businesses and community leaders are exploring their options to keep workers on the payroll and lessen the economic impact on their communities. Today’s conversation on federal small business relief efforts was productive. I thank the many leaders and business owners for taking the time out of their busy schedules and Rep. Spano for his gracious invitation to speak.” said Chabot.
“Topics raised on this call included eliminating burdensome regulations, loss of local government revenue, and unemployment numbers,” Spano’s office noted. Spano also held a similar call with U.S. Rep. French Hill, R-Ark., at the start of last week.
Members of the Brandon, Lakeland, Plant City, Riverview Chamber, South Lake and Uptown Chambers of Commerce took part in the call.
