NFIB/Missouri: Kathryn Swan Earns 100% Voting Record on Small-Business Issues
JEFFERSON CITY - July 18, 2014 Brad Jones, state director of the National Federation of Independent Business, said today that Kathryn Swan (R-Cape Girardeau) achieved a 100 percent voting record in the 2013-14 legislative sessions.
"Small business is what drives Missouri's economy," Jones said. "By supporting small business, Swan is supporting working families and the community." NFIB is Missouri's largest small-business association with over 8,500 dues-paying members representing a cross section of the state's economy.
"Rep. Kathryn Swan has stood up for Missouri's employers and job creators time and time again on important issues such as tax reform and unemployment insurance," he said. "Our members appreciate her efforts to help grow our state's economy and create jobs."
To achieve a 100 percent NFIB/Missouri voting record, Rep. Swan voted in support of small business on issues such as:
* Workers' compensation reform
* Small-business tax reductions
* Unemployment reform
* Tort reform
* Labor law reform
"As a small business owner and member of NFIB, I truly understand the challenges that small businesses face on a day-to-day basis. State government must build and maintain a business-friendly climate that enables our job-creating small businesses. Small business success benefits families and communities," says Swan.
