NFIB Urges Lawmakers to Follow Gov. Parson’s Lead
NFIB, or the National Federation of Independent Business, the leading small business organization in Missouri, applauds Gov. Mike Parsons for his commitment to passing important COVID-19 liability reform in Missouri as soon as possible. Yesterday, in his State of the State speech said that he hopes that the first piece of legislation to hit his desk would be a COVID-19 liability protection bill.
“Our small business members here in Missouri were very pleased to hear Gov. Parson say that he is eager to have a liability bill on his desk as soon as possible,” said Brad Jones, NFIB State Director in Missouri. “With all of the challenges that small business owners face here in Missouri, the prospect of facing an expensive and frivolous lawsuit is daunting and could be the final blow that means our mom and pop shops here in Missouri have to close their doors for good. According to a recent NFIB member survey, if economic conditions don’t improve, one in four small business owners will shut down.”
