Representatives from the Wisconsin Credit Union League will be among the guest speakers at an April 26 small business panel hosted by U.S. Rep. Ron Kind (D-La Crosse).

Among the topics up for discussion are helping small businesses access tax credits, loans, procurement and other initiatives. A question and answer question session with the panelists will also take place.  Next week’s panel is the third one Kind has hosted in April.

According to Kind’s office, representatives from the Community Bankers and the Wisconsin Credit Union League will also answer questions regarding lending and the credit market.

Other guest panelists are scheduled to come from the Small Business Administration, U.S. Export Assistance Office in the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Small Business Development Center, and the entrepreneurship and economic development center at the University of Wisconsin-Extension. Officials from the IRS will talk about tax benefits for businesses.

Kind is a member of the Ways and Means Committee, which has jurisdiction over tax policy, Medicare, Social Security, and international trade. He also serves on the Subcommittee on Health, and since becoming a member in 2007, has focused his work primarily on that of issues relating to small business.

Earlier this month, Kind introduced the S Corporation Modernization Act (H.R. 1478), a proposal that would make it easier for S corporations to access capital, compete, and hire new workers.
