Through the work of NFIB members, small business owners have helped:
- Repeal expanded 1099 reporting requirements;
- Sideline the CLASS program, a key part of Obamacare that would drive up healthcare costs;
- Curb a Department of Transportation mandate that operators of farm equipment hold a commercial driver's license;
- Stop overregulation such as an EPA rule that, literally, equated spilled milk with oil spills;
- Win relief from 1099-K reporting requirements.
"NFIB's work is never done," Bonner says. "We will continue to fight for lower taxes, fewer regulations, more affordable healthcare and the many other issues that are important to small business owners."
