U.S. Rep. Mike Bost (R-Dist. 12) and Rep. Steve Chabot (R-OH), chairman of the Small Business Committee met with Southern Illinois business owners, manufacturers and employees this week in Belleville to discuss job growth in District 12.
“I was honored that Chairman Chabot accepted my invitation to join me in Southern Illinois so he could have a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing our small businesses and their hard-working employees,” Bost said. “I am working hard to connect the people with their government, and there’s no better way to do so than inviting decision makers to come here and listen to local residents directly.”
Bost and Chabot conducted a manufacturers roundtable with business owners and members of the Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce.
The lawmakers then toured Roland Machinery in Carterville..
