Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce Reps Push Their Legislative Agenda in DC
WASHINGTON - People in the nation’s capital got a taste of Brooklyn this week.
Representatives from the borough's Chamber of Commerce traveled to Washington to push their legislative agenda.
They want more legislation that helps small businesses, and even brought down a sampling of some of Brooklyn's most popular products, like Junior’s Cheesecake and beer from the Brooklyn Brewery.
The chamber's president, Carlo Scissura, also says he hopes to see Congress pass a transportation bill.
"Brooklynites rely on mass transit, on roads, like everyone else, but particularly on mass transit. Get that bill funded, and get money into cities," Scissura said.
