Rep. Hastings stops in Yakima to tour winery

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Congressman Doc Hastings made a stop in Yakima Friday.
Hastings toured Treveri Cellars and learned how they make their popular sparkling wines.

Hastings says he tries to tour local businesses as much as possible around the 4th District.
He says small businesses make up a huge part of the economy and when they experience the success that Treveri has, it's always exciting.

"They are the largest employers, hiring new people then all of your big corporations. So, small business is the engine that runs our national economy," said Rep. Hastings.

Hastings says streamlining regulations and adding certainty to the tax code can help small businesses continue to grow.

And those are things he's working on in congress.
