At the beginning of November, Americans went to the polls to decide the shape of the Congress. The two years following the election of President Obama have been interesting and often difficult for franchisees and franchisors. But how will the new Senate and House of Representatives deal with the issues that matter most to the franchising community?
The team at FranchisingVotes has put together a very useful website called MeetThe112th, which allows users to scroll from state to state to learn more about the representatives and senators that will represent them in the 112th Congress, which will be sworn into power next month.
Apart from simply naming the candidates, the site allows you to brush up on the biographies of new representatives and surmise which way they might be voting on certain matters of great interest to the franchising community.
It’s just a morsel of the relevant information that you’ll find on FranchiseVotes. The next session of Congress is likely to be contentious, with many issues pertaining to small-business funding to be decided. Stay in touch with the franchising news from Washington here.
