“Clearly, our leaders in state government understand what small business means to Louisiana’s economy,” Starns said. “Our small-business members and their employees appreciate the tremendous support they have received the past two years from our state legislators and key statewide officials involved in the legislative process.”
The NFIB Louisiana Voting Record for 2016-17 includes 11 key votes on issues ranging from inventory tax credits to equal pay legislation. Some bills came up for a vote in only one chamber of the Legislature.
“This voting record is a reflection of the enormous support small business has in the Louisiana Legislature,” Starns said. “By continuing to elect legislators and leaders committed to supporting our small business owners and employees, voters will have the greatest impact on improving their own local community’s economic future as well as our entire state.”
