Since the pandemic hit, Virginia small business has faced many challenges.
It’s time for the General Assembly to pass pro-small business legislation that will re-invigorate Main Street and protect our small business owners and employees.
Support Virginia’s Small Business Recovery Plan.
NFIB’s four legislative principles are aimed at helping ensure Virginia’s small businesses have the resources they need to move forward during the recovery.
NFIB’s legislative principles include:
- Tax relief. The legislature must provide tax relief for small businesses so they can recover faster, keep and hire employees, and bolster their communities.
- Sensible regulations. Small business owners are urging lawmakers to repeal onerous regulations and mandates and when appropriate replace them with reasonable policies that don’t interfere with their ability to own, operate, and grow their businesses.
- Financial assistance. NFIB members supportnear- and longer-term financial assistance programs for employers with continuing financial needs including rising health care costs.
- Unemployment insurance reform. The pandemic stretched Virginia’s unemployment system to its breaking point. It’s essential that the General Assembly pass meaningful unemployment reform and ensure that small businesses aren’t held liable for fraudulent payments or overpayments.
