During the 2013 legislative session, NFIB/South Carolina:
- Convinced lawmakers to commit tens of millions of dollars for road and bridge improvements without raising taxes on small business.
- Helped pass the Small Business Access to Growth Act, which establishes state income tax credits for “angel investors” who provide capital for emerging “high-growth” enterprises in such areas as manufacturing, processing, warehousing, wholesaling, software development, and information technology services. These tax credits are available through 2019.
- Supported efforts to crack down on criminals who try to steal merchandise by covering the real barcode with one from a cheaper product.
- Stopped legislation that would have forced employers to garnish wages that employees may owe to third parties as well as legislation that would allow counties to raise minimum wage.
