Sen. Cunningham Recognized for Outstanding Small Business Voting Record

Jefferson City — State Sen. Mike Cunningham, R-Rogersville, was recently recognized by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) for his positive voting record on key issues relating to small businesses.

Brad Jones, state director of the NFIB, recognized the senator for achieving a 100 percent voting record during the 2014 legislative session. “Senator Cunningham 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 the efforts of Sen. Cunningham to help grow our state’s economy and create jobs.”

The NFIB was founded in 1943 and has grown to become the nation’s leading small business association, with offices in Washington, D.C. and all 50 states. The NFIB gives small and independent business owners a voice in shaping the public policy issues that affect their business.

A former small business owner, Sen. Cunningham is a steadfast supporter of legislation that aims to protect and grow small businesses across Missouri. “It’s an honor to be recognized by the NFIB, an organization that has never stopped fighting for Missouri’s small businesses and their owners,” said Cunningham. “Small businesses provide employment opportunities and stimulate local economies. They are essential to the overall financial health and stability of our state and our country.”
