Federal Spotlight: Congressional officials visit Iowa manufacturers

July 13, 2017

Congress was in recess last week, and during that time Iowa’s Congressional delegation visited business leaders and manufacturers to hear about challenges companies face and answer questions about pending legislation. On Thursday, Congressman Rod Blum received the Spirit of Enterprise award from the U.S. Chamber at an event in Waverly. The award was presented by ABI and IIPAC Board Member Steve Dust of the Greater Cedar Valley Alliance and Molly Smith of the U.S. Chamber.

On Friday, past ABI Chair Lori Schaefer-Weaton welcomed Sen. Charles Grassley to Agri-Industrial Plastics for a town hall with local business leaders and Agri team members. Thank you to all ABI members for hosting Congressional, legislative and local elected officials in your facilities. The voice of Iowa business cannot be heard without you.
