LINCOLN, Neb., Jan. 12, 2017—Bob Hallstrom, Nebraska state director for the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), issued the following comment on Gov. Pete Ricketts’s annual state-of-the-state address, today.
“The small-business owners of NFIB appreciate the continuing commitment of Governor Ricketts to provide property and income tax relief and to manage the state budget by controlling spending. His call to make state government more ‘customer-focused’ and to cut red tape are music to the ears of Main Street entrepreneurs who know better than anyone the difficulties involved with regulatory compliance.”
The National Federation of Independent Business is America’s largest and leading small-business association with 350,000 dues-paying members across the nation, including nearly 5,000 in Nebraska. Follow us on Twitter, @NFIB_NE.

NFIB annually surveys its members on state and federal issues vital to their survival as America’s economic engine and biggest creator of jobs. NFIB’s educational mission is to remind policymakers that small businesses are not smaller versions of bigger businesses; they have very different challenges and priorities.
