Members of the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce and the Bryan-College Chamber met with Texas Senator John Cornyn Tuesday morning, getting an update on changes and legislation that might affect their areas.
And aide to Senator Cornyn said in their Tuesday meeting the senator discussed the benefits employees across Texas are already seeing from tax reform like bigger paychecks and bonuses.
He also talked about the need to modernize, but not abandon, the North American Free Trade Agreement.
There was also talk about the Higher Education Reauthorization Act and the importance of having a well trained work force to attract new business to the state.
This is one of several stops the chamber members will be making while in Washington learning about new developments and making their preferences and needs heard.
The Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce hosts the Washington, D.C. Fly-In each spring in conjunction with the Bryan-College Station Chamber of Commerce.
Representatives from each chamber, along with other community representatives, visit D.C. for the opportunity to meet with federal elected and agency leadership to discuss legislative policies and advocate for our key policy priorities.
This year’s key policy priorities for Waco include Workforce and Education, Transportation and Infrastructure, and Fiscal Policy and Regulatory Relief.
