Answering questions about an act having major effects on small business. Congresswoman Shelley Moore Captio (R, WV 2nd District) visited Parkersburg Monday for a roundtable discussion.

Local business owners and city officials gathered to express their concerns about The Affordable Care Act, as well.

Congresswoman Captio says there are some benefits to the act, including a pre-existing condition clause.

However, she says she's repealed the law for her overall concern of the impact on small businesses.

"Employers are cutting back to under 30 hours so they would be considered part time employees. That concerns me about the welfare of a family being able to afford life as a part time employee."
