Furthermore, she brings a strong understanding of the issues and challenges that our members care about, including making tax relief permanent and healthcare affordable, flexible, and reliable. We are confident that Ives will remain a staunch supporter for Illinois small businesses in the U.S. House of Representatives. It is my honor to announce today NFIB’s endorsement of Jeanne Ives on behalf of small businesses in Illinois’ Sixth Congressional District.”

Small business owners are influential in their communities and NFIB members in Illinois will work hard to elect Jeanne Ives to Congress.
