Washington, D.C. (July 18, 2016) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading representative of small business owners endorsed  Rep. Diane Black (TN-06) for re-election at an event at NFIB’s Nashville headquarters. Black has a strong record of supporting legislation that would help small businesses and should be returned to the U.S. House of Representatives.

“Congressman Diane Black is a strong voice for small business and a great friend to NFIB members,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “In this Congress, she stood with small business owners on every critical vote scored by the NFIB so far. That’s an impressive record and we hope to see her back in the U.S. House next year continuing to stand against high taxes and oppressive regulations.”

“NFIB members in Congressman Diane Black’s district know she is a trustworthy, sincere and proven defender of their right to own, operate and grow their businesses,” said NFIB/Tennessee State Director Jim Brown, noting Black and her husband are longtime NFIB members. “Diane Black has stood with small business time and again, and she will continue to fight the significant overreach they’re experiencing.”

Black qualified for an endorsement from the NFIB by achieving a high rating on votes scored in the current Congress. The Congressman earned 100 percent on the 13 votes NFIB has monitored so far. The list of the votes is available here.

Black’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.
