Promote important business issues at Iowa Business Day on the Hill

The 2017 legislative session is a little over one month old, and already many proposals have come forward that could have a profound effect on Iowa businesses – both positive and negative.

It is important that legislators hear from Iowa business leaders and keep business issues front of mind as they weigh these pieces of legislation. Iowa Business Day on the Hill offers a perfect opportunity to communicate with your legislators at the Statehouse next month.

For the third straight year, ABI is partnering with other business organizations, including the National Federation of Independent Business of Iowa and the Iowa Chamber Alliance, to host this event to provide both businesspeople and lawmakers with even greater awareness of the issues affecting Iowa businesses.

Those who attended last year’s event played a significant role in helping to convince legislators of the importance of coupling state and federal tax law and clarifying Iowa’s tax code as it relates to consumable supplies used in the manufacturing process. The legislation was passed that same day.

This is also an opportunity to celebrate and promote the important role Iowa businesses play in their communities and the state.

This year, Iowa Business Day on the Hill will begin Monday, March 13, with a networking reception with members of partner organizations and legislators.

On Tuesday, March 14, participants will receive an update on activity at the Legislature before heading to the Capitol to meet with lawmakers.

Legislators need to hear firsthand from employers and employees in their districts about how decisions being made at the Statehouse are affecting everyday Iowans. Join us March 13 and 14 to help educate Iowa’s elected officials on the issues important to Iowa businesses.
