WASHINGTON – Chip Rogers, the president and CEO of the Asian American Hotel Owners Association, released the following statement regarding President Donald J. Trump’s joint address to Congress Tuesday:
“The president’s speech was a vivid reminder that Americans can unite to solve big challenges. President Trump’s call for reducing regulations, reforming the tax code and investing in America’s infrastructure is welcomed by our more than 16,000 small business owner members. As pioneers in the hotel industry, our members are eager for action by the administration and Congress on items that will promote travel and tourism and empower them to continue to create jobs in their communities. We’ll continue to educate lawmakers and regulators about the impact on our industry of issues like the joint employer standard, overtime rules, health care reform and tax reform.”
