Congressman Billy Long addresses the Springfield Chamber of Commerce’s Governmental Relations Committee this morning.
This is certainly a politically busy time nationally, statewide and locally.
I try my best to keep up with it all, and this morning I was one of 50 to 60 local business folks and various agency representatives gathered to hear from Billy Long.
It is critical for me to keep an open mind on all issues, as well as keep as fully informed on various types of legislation that may affect the safety of everyone in our community.
The issues Billy spoke about this morning included our opioid epidemic, export/import bank, FAST act, veterans administration, and other issues.
Everyone should find the time to be involved in your local and national political systems so you know more, first hand, about the players and the issues.
