SMALL BUSINESS LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL LISTS PRIORITIES, ELECTS NEW OFFICERS AT ANNUAL MEETING

 WASHINGTON, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The economy, health care reform and a voice for small business in the White House, came up one, two, and three on the priority list of the Small Business Legislative Council (SBLC) as a result of member voting at its annual meeting.
 "It comes as no surprise to us that these three issues are at the top of our list. Small business has felt the biting sting of a down economy, the chilling impact of a runaway health care system and the frustration of not being able to do anything about it," said H. Ted Olson, chairman of the board of the SBLC.
 "But," Olson continued, "we sensed great optimism among our members that President Clinton will act on these matters."
 Olson concluded: "On all three points, our membership reaffirmed policies we have had in place for some time. What is interesting about these recommendations, is that on many points they parallel many of the president's campaign initiatives. I believe that is the basis for the great optimism of our members."
 The SBLC also elected new officers for 1993 at the annual meeting. Elected were Olson, (president, Specialty Advertising Association International) as chairman; Kenton Pattie (executive vice-president, International Communications Industries Association) as chairman-elect; Gary Frank Petty (president, National Moving and Storage Association) as treasurer; and Peter McNeish (president, National Association of Small Business Investment Companies) as secretary. The immediate past chairman of the SBLC is Robert D. Bannister (sr. staff vice president of government affairs, National Association of Home Builders) and John S. Satagaj is the president of the SBLC.
 The SBLC is a permanent, independent coalition of nearly 100 trade and professional associations that share a common commitment to the future of small business. SBLC members represent the interests of small businesses in such diverse economic sectors as manufacturing, retailing, distribution, professional and technical services, construction, transportation, and agriculture. Policies are developed through a consensus among the membership. Individual associations may express their own views.
