NFIB is committed to seeking legislative reforms that help small businesses. And, since 1986, our small business members have told us that increasing healthcare costs are their No. 1 problem. NFIB has worked tirelessly to offer solutions and encourage Congress to pursue reforms that will help lower healthcare costs and provide affordable options for small businesses.

Legislative Activity

NFIB opposed the Obama administration’s healthcare law because we believe it increases costs for small businesses. We remain committed to helping small-business owners plan and comply with this new law, but that doesn’t mean the fight is over. NFIB continues to advocate for legislative proposals like repealing the small-business health insurance tax and the employer mandate provision.
