    Here’s a look at some challenges NFIB/Tennessee will address in the General Assembly:

    We're continuing to monitor shortfalls in the state budget and proposals that would alter our current collection scheme. Our tax experts remain engaged with state leaders to be sure the small business view is represented. We will continue to protect small businesses from harmful proposals and encourage the legislature to reduce unnecessary spending.
