Meetings with Main Street: Rep. Flood Meets with Albers Feedlot

Wisner, Nebraska

Republican Members of the Small Business Committee understand the importance of hearing directly from American entrepreneurs, innovators, and job creators. As small businesses face record-high inflation, labor shortages, and supply chain disruptions, Small Business Committee Republicans continue to examine solutions and receive input from small business owners. This August, Ranking Member Luetkemeyer began the Meetings with Main Street Series as part of his continuing efforts to keep the Small Business Committee connected with the concerns of the nation's job creators.

“Meetings with Main Street are critical as small businesses battle economic headwinds that threaten their ability to serve their customers and expand their operations. Instead of holding our entrepreneurs back with burdensome regulations and tax increases, we must empower our small businesses with the tools they need to prosper, and Small Business Committee Republican Members have been working in Washington to do just that,” said Ranking Member Luetkemeyer

On August 4, 2022, Rep. Mike Flood (R-NE) met with the employees of Albers Feedlot located in Wisner, Nebraska, to see how inflation and the tough economic conditions under President Biden has impacted their business.

"Thank you to Congressman Flood for listening to our priorities. We're a fifth-generation family business that has been at the heart of the beef industry in Wisner for a century. It is important that our representation in Washington, D.C. strive to understand the citizens they represent. We are excited about working with Congressman Flood on priorities that will grow our rural communities and small businesses in Cuming County and beyond," said Todd Schroeder, Albers Feedlot.

"It was an honor to visit with Albers Feedlot and Nebraska Cattlemen in Wisner to get more perspective on the current market and how inflation is hurting the cattle industry. Together, we can beat the Biden Administration’s disastrous economic policy and regulatory overreach," said Congressman Flood.
