 WASHINGTON, June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- If the American small business sector is the nation's primary source of employment, economic growth and entrepreneurial activity, why is it facing a barrage of public policies which will deter growth and discourage free enterprise?
 That's the question numbers of entrepreneurs will be seeking answers to when they arrive in Washington Sunday, June 27, for the National Federation of Independent Business' 50th anniversary celebration at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Capitol Hill. The three-day event will feature public policymakers ranging from President Clinton, possibly, to governors, senators, representatives, political activists and even Ross Perot's pollster.
 Organizers remain hopeful that President Clinton will appear and some members of his administration have already confirmed their plans to attend. Among them are U.S. Trade Representative Mickey Kantor, Office of Management and Budget Deputy Director Alice Rivlin and U.S. Small Business Administrator Erskine Bowles.
 Florida Gov. Lawton Chiles and former Tennessee Gov. Lamar Alexander will address the group along with U.S. Sens. Phil Gramm (R-Texas) and Trent Lott (R-Miss.). Other Capitol Hill attendees confirmed are Reps. Bill Archer (R-Texas), Cass Ballenger (R-N.C.), Tom Bliley (R-Va.) and John Kasich (R-Ohio).
 For the political perspective former congressman and Bush administration health official Jack Kemp will be there, along with pollster and analyst Frank Luntz, who conducts research for Texas businessman and political dynamo Ross Perot. Businesswoman Arlene Goodman of KOA Campgrounds, Nashville, will offer a private sector viewpoint.
 Debate sessions on health care, workers' compensation, deficit reduction, taxes, the environment and replacing striking workers are expected to enliven the atmosphere and boost attendee's spirits as they make the traditional NFIB en masse trek to Capitol Hill to lobby their senators and representatives.
 Registration and hotel information may be obtained from NFIB Golden Anniversary, 600 Maryland Ave. S.W., Washington, D.C. 20024, or by calling 202-554-9000.
