(INDIANAPOLIS) — With many Hoosier businesses currently looking to the federal government for guidance, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce is bringing the state’s congressional delegation to them in an upcoming event.
The 2020 D.C. Fly-in will be held virtually on August 12-13 from 10 a.m. to noon EDT both days. All of Indiana’s 11 delegation members – led by Sens. Todd Young and Mike Braun – have confirmed their participation for at least one of the two moderated sessions. Attendees can submit their questions for consideration in real-time.
“We’ve put together a program that prioritizes the unprecedented situation we are still in, while also acknowledging that other key matters still need to be addressed,” says Greg Ellis, the Indiana Chamber’s vice president of energy, environment, and federal affairs.
“With the convenience and safety of the webinar format, we hope to engage a record number of Hoosier business leaders in the Fly-in discussion.”
The day one conversation will center on the here and now and into next year. Specifically, what’s left to do to aid in emerging from the pandemic and the longer-term economic recovery. Also on tap will be security concerns and international relations.
Traditional domestic issues that remain of paramount importance and await action highlight the agenda on day two. These include infrastructure, health care, broadband and fiscal matters.
The two retiring representatives, Pete Visclosky (IN-1) and Susan Brooks (IN-5), will be honored as part of the program.
The 2020 D.C. Fly-in is free of charge for Indiana Chamber members and $29.95 for non-members. Register to attend at www.indianachamber.com/flyin.
The event is sponsored by TruGreen and Indiana American Water.
