Senate Bill Would Change the Rules on Kansas Businesses

Date: February 09, 2017

Dan Murray, state director of the National Federation of Independent Business, released the following statement this morning in advance of the Senate vote on Senate Bill 147:

“On behalf of our small-business members, I’m asking the Senate to vote ‘no’ on Senate Bill 147.

“Senate Bill 147 is a bad bill that would make it even harder for small businesses in Kansas to grow and create jobs. It would hurt working families, and that would hurt the rest of the economy. 

“It’s especially unfair that Senate Bill 147 would be retroactive to January. You can’t change the rules in the middle of the game. Small businesses want predictability. You’re not going to invest in new equipment or new employees if you don’t know the lay of the land. Senate Bill 147 not only changes the rules, but it tells employers they can never be sure of where they stand in Kansas because they can’t be sure the Legislature won’t change the rules on them again.

“That’s why, before it’s too late, we’re asking the Legislature to slow down and vote ‘no’ on Senate Bill 147.”
