GLC preparing for Washington, D.C. trip

Feb 21, 2012


A group from the Lafayette area is preparing to meet with some of Indiana’s Congressional delegation February 29 - March 2.

They hope to share some of their goals with such lawmakers as Senator Dick Lugar and Congressman Mike Pence.

Tippecanoe County Councilman Dave Williams chairs the Federal Government Committee for Greater Lafayette Commerce. He says the goal of these annual trips is to plant seeds with lawmakers, and to come together locally to address common needs.

Lafayette area Congressman Todd Rokita cast a “no” vote for the extension of the payroll tax cut. The 4th District Republican was joined by two other House members and Senator Dan Coats.

Rokita opposed the bill because he says it will hurt the country in the long run.
