Montana business leaders lay their concerns on the table for Senator John Walsh, expressing their frustrations with everything from health care to taxes to travel.
Walsh, Montana's newest delegate, stopped by Missoula Thursday to hold a business roundtable. Present were about a dozen leaders of agriculture, technology, engineering and food product companies.
Some told Walsh obstacles facing their business are changes in the Farm Bill and the new health insurance exchange.
Others highlight the difficulty of traveling in and out of Missoula and how hard it is for some of their new employees to pay off student loans.
All hope Walsh can bring their concerns to Washington and affect change.
"We're traveling around the state holding business roundtables to find out what I could do in Washington D.C. to help facilitate job growth and make business in Montana improve," Walsh said.
Some of the companies represented were Missoula Federal Credit Union, First Security Bank, Rivertop Renewables, Worden's Market, Kamut International, and Advanced Technology Group-- among others.
