State House Majority Leader Jon Burns of the 159th District has been recognized as a 16-year member of the National Federation of Independent Business, Georgia’s leading small-business association. Rep. Burns, who owns B & S Feed and Farm Supply in Springfield, has been a member of NFIB since 2001.
“Small business is the engine that drives Georgia’s economy, and, as a small-business owner, Rep. Burns understands that,” said Nathan Humphrey, state director of NFIB. “It’s one thing for small-business owners to speak up about the issues affecting them, their employees, and their families, but Rep. Burns is trying to change things from the inside.
“During his time in the legislature and while serving as the House Majority Leader, Rep. Burns has earned a 100-percent NFIB voting record, supporting the small-business community by opposing burdensome rules and regulations and supporting legislation that makes it easier for small-business owners to expand and create jobs.
“On behalf of our small-business members, I want to thank Majority Leader Jon Burns for everything he has done in the General Assembly and for being a member of NFIB.”
