Washington,
DC (February 16, 2016)
– The National
Federation of Independent Business (NFIB)
, the nation’s leading
representative of small business owners, is endorsing Sen. Richard Shelby
(R-AL) for reelection. Shelby has a strong record of standing up for small
business in the U.S. Senate and should continue representing the people of
Alabama.

“Senator
Shelby is a strong voice for small business in the U.S. Senate,” said NFIB/Alabama State Director Rosemary
Elebash
. “We’re grateful that he has worked to fight bad laws and
regulations like Obamacare and Dodd-Frank. He knows that our state’s small
businesses are critical to jobs and the economy and that they need to be free
if we want to see them grow and thrive.”

“I
am honored to have the NFIB’s endorsement,” said Shelby. “Small businesses are
the driving force for job creation in America, yet President Obama’s policies
are burying them under a mountain of regulations written by
Washington bureaucrats. I am fighting to unravel Dodd-Frank’s unnecessary
roadblocks to capital and to promote fundamental tax reform because I
believe we must foster the conditions for small businesses to thrive
and create jobs in America.” 

Shelby
qualified for an endorsement from the NFIB by achieving an 83 percent positive
rating on votes scored in the current Congress. The list of scored votes is
available here.

“Small
business owners are engaged in elections and vote for legislators who help them
succeed,” said Elebash. “I am certain that NFIB members will work hard to make
sure Senator Shelby wins both the primary and general elections.”

Shelby’s endorsement
today comes from the NFIB SAFE Trust, the organization’s political action
committee.  Small business owners vote in high percentages and they are
influential in their communities.
