FALLS CHURCH, Va. - As a new member of the Small Business Legislative Council board, Ike Casey, vice president of the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors - National Association (PHCC), will have a leadership role on five key legislative priorities in 2007. Casey will be allowed to convey the PHCC’s position on comprehensive health care, comprehensive immigration reform, estate tax relief, transportation infrastructure funding, and simplified research and development credit as they are refined and presented to Congress.

“The council’s policies are developed through a consensus process,” said Casey. “We are pleased that PHCC will have a voice in their development and presentation. We also hope there will be the opportunity to add one or two more issues to the priority list that are of special interest to PHCC.”
