FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TRENTON, N.J. (Sept. 11, 2023) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), New Jersey and the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, today released its biennial voting record for the members of the New Jersey Senate and General Assembly.
“The small businesses that define our Main Streets and line our boardwalks remain confronted with an unpredictable environment and ever-changing economic headwinds as they continue to rebuild post-pandemic. More than ever, New Jersey small businesses need strong representation and legislative champions in Trenton,” said Eileen Kean, NFIB New Jersey State Director. “With NFIB’s voting record, small business owners, their employees, and all Garden State voters can see which lawmakers in the Legislature have been a reliable voice for New Jersey’s small businesses and which have turned their back on local job creators. NFIB’s voting record makes it crystal clear who ‘walks the walk’ for small business owners in the Senate and the General Assembly, and not just on the campaign trail.”
NFIB tracks the key legislative issues identified by our small business members every session, and then we tabulate a score for each New Jersey lawmaker in the General Assembly and state Senate. The NFIB voting record provides a critically important evaluation of a legislator’s attitude toward small business based on floor votes. You won’t find a more effective way to gauge the performance of politicians than examining their voting record.
“Our 2022-23 New Jersey State Voting Record reflects the real-world challenges and opportunities NFIB members are navigating,” Kean added. “From tax and regulatory reform to the state’s fiscally mismanaged Unemployment Insurance system and persistent labor shortages, the issues and votes examined have a direct, tangible impact on the strength and vitality of every New Jersey small business. NFIB is proud to educate our members and hold their elected officials accountable.”
For 80 years, NFIB has been the voice of small business, advocating on behalf of America’s small and independent business owners, both in Washington, D.C., and in all 50 state capitals. NFIB is nonprofit, nonpartisan, and member-driven. Since our founding in 1943, NFIB has been exclusively dedicated to small and independent businesses and remains so today.
