On September 20, 2017, Executive Director Yesim Sayin Taylor discussed the local business climate on the Kojo Nnamdi show:

Over the past several years, the D.C. Council has passed progressive legislation raising the minimum wage and expanding the city’s benefits for paid family and medical leave. But now the Council Chairman has suggested the city should take a break on legislation that could negatively affect the bottom lines of local businesses. Kojo explores the climate for business in local Washington and whether the Council should change its direction.
