No one has greater incentive, responsiblity or ability to lead an economic recovery than America’s small business owners – more than 350,000 of whom are NFIB members. Therefore, lawmakers have a special obligation to ensure that public policies help spur economic growth by taking into account the unique perspective of those who are are owning and operating a small business in America.
