If you are a small business owner or have small business interests, spend time at the state capitol on Wednesday, Feb. 22, to learn about the key legislative issues that will impact Nebraska's small businesses.
Highlights of Small Business Day include a visit from Gov. Dave Heineman and several committee chairs from the legislature, as well as a chance to ask your state senator questions about issues ranging from taxes to health care.
This is your opportunity to make an impact on your state legislators, learn more about important issues, including workers' compensation, regulatory burdens, mandated benefits, employment issues and state budget.
"Small Business Day is important because it's an avenue for officials to hear directly from the very people they affect with the policy changes they make," said Joseph Young, director of public policy for the Greater Omaha Chamber. "There really are no better lobbyists than constituents. They make a big difference."
The event is presented by the NFIB/Nebraska, the State Chamber, the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Omaha Chamber, the Lincoln Independent Business Association and Nebraska for Workers' Compensation Equity & Fairness. Cost for the program is $15, which covers lunch and materials. For more information call 402-474-3570 or email Tara Miles. Register today!
