Benefits for Nevada from tax reform detailed
A January 23 conference call with Sen. Dean Heller highlighted one of the more appreciated benefits of membership in NFIB: The opportunity to hear directly from — and talk directly to — the state and federal lawmakers making the policies affecting the operation of your enterprise.
Hosted by NFIB/Nevada State Director Randi Thompson, the 27-minute TeleForum provided Senator Heller with a chance to give members an update on recent actions in Congress, which he called the most pro-small-business in a very long time.
“Despite what you might hear from the media, good things are happening in Washington D.C.,” said Senator Heller, who went on discuss:
- the benefits from passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which the senator noted that had it passed 10 years ago would have kept 5,000 companies from leaving the U.S.
- the number of regulations that Congress and the Trump administration have reduced
- court appointments of judges who believe in following the rule of law, not making law from the bench
- a suspension of costly health-care taxes
- updates to the Medicare and Medicaid programs.
About Nevada since the recession, the senator said, “No state was hit harder; no state is ramping up faster.” To help expedite that ramping up, the senator is also working on a creating better banking climate in the state aimed at providing more capital for entrepreneurs.
Senator Heller, who has a 100-percent, pro-small-business voting record from NFIB, thanked members for their participation and looked forward to participating in more NFIB TeleForums.
Participation in NFIB’s TeleForums couldn’t be easier. Before each, every NFIB member in Nevada, who hasn’t opted out of being called, is phoned and asked if they want to participate, and if so, are connected immediately.
