Luetkemeyer statement on MLB decision to move All-Star Game out of Georgia

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Committee on Small Business Ranking Member Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) released the following statement on the MLB's decision to move the All-Star Game out of Georgia.

“The MLB’s decision to move the All-Star Game out of Georgia is a swing and a miss. This change alone will result in a $100 million economic loss to both Cobb County and countless small businesses in the state, many of which are minority-owned. At a time where small businesses are working tirelessly to open their doors to the public, we cannot stand by and allow the MLB to crush these hardworking men and women for the organization’s own political gain.”
