WASHINGTON (WLFI) – The annual Greater Lafayette Commerce trip to Washington, D.C. got underway Wednesday. There was a packed schedule this afternoon including three meetings for area lawmakers.
The D.C. delegation stopped at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce earlier Wednesday.
News 18′s Dan Klein is live in D.C. and reports immigration, transportation and politics were top priorities on Wednesday’s agenda. Dan caught up with Greater Lafayette Commerce President and CEO Joe Seaman to discuss the issues topping the agenda. Seaman told News 18 that GLC members said it was important for their group to meet with this National Chamber while they were in Washington.
“The meetings with the U.S. Chamber have always been good, and I think our position papers pretty much would support what they’re arguing for, and trying to work for here in Washington D.C.,” Seaman said. “We are very much strong believers in passing some type of immigration relief, and certainly transportation – everybody’s feeling that bite.”
