Sen. Sharon Runner
Small and independent businesses are struggling to stay afloat. Many are family owned businesses – making it hard for them to voice their concerns on proposed legislation in Sacramento. Yet, they have found an advocate in Senator Sharon Runner.
On behalf of California’s small businesses, the National Federation of Independent Business gave Sharon Runner a perfect score for her advocacy of small businesses.
“Running a small business in California is more challenging than in our neighboring states,” said Sen. Sharon Runner. “The amount of resources dedicated to doing paperwork with various government agencies is costly.”
Runner added, “Making payroll is already challenging given today’s economy. Government should not add extra burdens on employers.”
After tracking legislation that would have significant impact on small businesses, NFIB thanked Runner for her support of small businesses and their employees.
Founded in 1943, the National Federation of Independent Business is the leading small business association representing small and independent businesses. Twenty thousand strong, NFIB’s mission is to promote and protect the right of our members to own, operate and grow their businesses.
A nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, NFIB represents the consensus views of its members in Washington and all 50 state capitals.
