55 Legislators Earn NFIB/Illinois Guardian of Small Business Awards

Date: September 08, 2014

Kim Clarke Maisch, state director of the National Federation of Independent Business, said today that 55 members of the Illinois General Assembly earned a Guardian of Small Business Award for achieving at least an 80 percent NFIB Voting record during the 2013-14 legislative session.
“Clearly, these legislators understand what small business means to Illinois’ economy,” Maisch said. 
“Our members appreciate the strong support from our senators and representatives, many of whom own and operate their own businesses back in their districts.”
NFIB/Illinois 2013-14 Voting Record included nine key issues including prevailing wage, employee classification, pension reform, workers’ compensation, the automatic IRA mandate, employee background checks, reduced filing fees and requiring contractors to participate in an apprenticeship program in order to qualify for local public works projects.
