WASHINGTON — Taxes, workforce and employment issues, tariffs and trade, cybersecurity and regulatory reform are the top government priorities in 2020 for the Small Business Legislative Council (SBLC).
The Tire Industry Association (TIA), an SBLC board member, announced the council's priorities in the Feb. 24 issue of TIA's Weekly Legislative Update.
"In a year that is almost sure to be rife with political tension and uncertainty, the SBLC's role will be more important than ever to ensure that the interests of small businesses, which play such a vital role in our economy, are considered and protected," SBLC President and General Counsel Paula Calimafde said.
TIA said it looked forward to working with the SBLC to solve the labor problems faced by small businesses, make tax reform work for small business, and improve U.S. infrastructure, rural development, trade opportunities and health care affordability.
The SBLC is an independent coalition of national trade and professional associations that works to maximize the presence of small business in developing federal legislative and regulatory policy, TIA said.
