Addressing the needs of small businesses is the cornerstone of Rep. Vern Buchanan's economic proposals, and one of the biggest needs as noted by Buchanan and others is for banks to again open their spigots to provide the funding small businesses need to expand and hire more workers.
On Tuesday, Buchanan will meet with local community bankers to encourage them to get back into the game.
"Buchanan is seeking input on legislative proposals to encourage small business lending to help create jobs," a news release we just received states.
The meeting will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday in Room 206 of the Federal Building in Sarasota, 111 Orange Ave.
For more information about the meeting, call Buchanan's Sarasota office at (941) 951-6643.
