Small businesses key to California’s economic health
20 Feb 2019
The start of the new year brought a new governor and a new Legislature, which provided opportunity for Californians to set new goals and expectations of our elected leaders in Sacramento. Small business owners, especially, have much at stake in the halls of the state Capitol, with many new opportunities and challenges ahead in 2019.
Members of the National Federation of Independent Business offer a unique and important perspective on policy-making since our membership is comprised entirely of small business owners who represent nearly every industry imaginable, from automotive repair shops to financial advising firms.
And our advocacy positions are a product of annual member balloting, which means we can provide clear and current insights to policymakers on some of the biggest issues facing our state, such as health care and tax reform.
