Congresswoman joins roundtable discussions with local Chambers of Commerce

MISHAWAKA, IN – Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (IN-02) completed a district-wide “Building Better Business” tour this evening, with her final stop at the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce. Joining roundtable discussions with an array of local business owners and volunteers across the district, Walorski learned important updates on relevant issues affecting economic growth in Northern Indiana.

“Hard-working Hoosiers have trail-blazed new innovation and technologies to bolster economic growth and provide good-paying jobs,” said Walorski. “Onerous regulations coming from Washington are perpetuating uncertainty and hindering job creation in our communities, and Congress must do their part to restore the workforce by cutting red tape and keeping taxes low for American businesses.”

Walorski met with Chamber members from South Bend to Wabash, representing a cross section of local industries such as agriculture, finance, and manufacturing. Many Hoosiers voiced concern over federal legislation, like Obamacare, that enforces an employer mandate and new health insurances taxes—weighing down small businesses. Other topics included the need for tax reform, improved infrastructure, and overreaching EPA regulations.

“The Greater Elkhart Chamber of Commerce is always happy to welcome Rep. Walorski to share important Congressional updates. We represent nearly 1,100 organizations that employ more than 44,000 people and we believe discussions with Rep. Walorski will help us create an even more viable business climate,” said Kyle Hannon, President and CEO of the Greater Elkhart Chamber of Commerce.

Congresswoman Walorski met with all ten counties of Indiana’s Second District over the course of two days. Later this week, she will also attend the Goshen Chamber of Commerce Luncheon in Elkhart County.
