• Support for business affected by the tornadoes: NFIB/Oklahoma will work to ensure that the Legislature provides the support small businesses need to rebuild and reopen as quickly as possible.
  • Unemployment: Recent changes to our unemployment laws have been a good start, but more needs to be done. NFIB will fight to bring more clarity and common sense to our unemployment laws.
  • Stopping new taxes on services and labor: Legislators in both the House and Senate have suggested new sales taxes on services and labor as a new source of state revenue. NFIB has vigorously and actively opposed all efforts to place new sales taxes on services and labor.
  • Regulatory expansion: We will vigorously fight new regulations that levy fines on small business, especially those that penalize for non-harmful or clerical errors. In a tough economy, government agencies look for ways to raise their revenue. We will make sure small businesses are not seen merely as a revenue source.

    Challenges Facing NFIB/Oklahoma

    Date: October 23, 2014

    Unemployment Reform
    Recent changes to our unemployment laws have been a good start, but more needs to be done. NFIB will fight to bring more clarity and common sense to our unemployment laws which will bring down costs for employers. We also seek to require  drug testing for unemployment benefits to make sure recipients are ready to go to work when an opportunity arises.
     
    Reduce 'red tape' and halt regulatory expansion
    Find ways to cut away the red tape at state agencies that so often hampers job creation. Vigorously fight new regulations that levy fines on small business, especially those that penalize for non-harmful or clerical errors.
     
    Eliminate the franchise tax
    Businesses in Oklahoma are double taxed with our state’s franchise tax. NFIB will continue to push for a better tax climate for small businesses.
     
    Encourage privatization of government services
    Encourage state leaders to move services to the private sector when it makes sense. Not only is this important for right-sizing government, but it helps small businesses and the economy.
