While the small-business economy continues to recover, the
perspective of those who have faced the unique challenges of owning and
running a business will be invaluable in the 114th Congress. While I
know that the 31 NFIB business-owner members who are now serving in
Congress will be sharing their perspectives in discussions and debates
daily, we also offer the NFIB Small Business Growth Agenda for the 114th
Congress as a reference guide to vital small-business data and policy
information. I hope this publication will become your small-business
desktop resource, always within reach.

You’ll find information on:

  • Who is NFIB?
  • Facts about Small Business
  • NFIB’s Legislative Priorities
  • The Agenda for Small Business Growth, which outlines our positions on healthcare, taxes, regulations, energy and labor
  • NFIB’s Small Business Resources:
  • The NFIB Political Department and Grassroots 
  • The NFIB Research Foundation
  • The NFIB Small Business Legal Center
  • The NFIB Young Entrepreneur Foundation
  • NFIB Digital

For America’s small-business owners, doing the right thing for small
business is much more than a campaign promise or political slogan. The
policy decisions that affect America’s small employers are personal,
with an impact on their way of life, their livelihoods and their ability
to provide economic certainty to their families and their employees—two
groups that often overlap in small businesses.

No one has a
greater incentive, responsibility or ability to grow the economy than
America’s small-business owners. Their collective wisdom and wishes must
be heard by lawmakers at all levels. At NFIB, we are honored to serve
as the prominent voice of the small-business message. Our legislative
positions are member-driven and research-backed, based on small-business
owner member ballots, which allow each NFIB member one vote and survey
information from NFIB’s Research Foundation. When we ask for your vote
on behalf of small business, rest assured that our policy position comes
directly from our membership.

Since 1943, NFIB has served as a
vital resource for lawmakers and policymakers in Washington, the state
legislatures, the courts and wherever crucial decisions affecting small
businesses are made. We look forward to working with you during the
114th Congress to help grow the small-business economy and restore small
business to its crucial role as the nation’s most effective creator of
jobs and economic stability.
