On, Wednesday, May 27, 2009, at 7:30 a.m. at The Lunch Box, 406 N. High, San Saba, Congressman Mike Conaway will hold a Legislative Update with special interest given to the adverse effects that a cap-and-trade tax would have on small businesses in Central Texas.
“I am looking forward to visiting with the constituents and small business owners at this forum,” said Conaway. “As a former small business owner myself, I know the adverse effects that this harmful legislation will impose on family-owned and local businesses. It is imperative that we get the word out and make our President and the leaders in Congress aware of our concerns. The Democrat’s cap-and-tax plan will lead to more taxes, fewer jobs, and more government invasion. This is an irresponsible proposal that will do more harm than good, and I encourage citizens in the area to come out and participate.”
