How do lawmakers impact your business?
Come find out at our October Monthly Meeting, when a representative from NFIB (National Federation of Independent Business) gives us an overview of what the State legislature is doing to regulate and dictate how you run YOUR business.
"As a women-owned business leader, it’s hard to manage all the demands of my small business; especially the parts I’m not well versed nor enjoy. That’s why I became a member of NFIB. They’re a watchdog group who advocate and protect the future of small business. If you’re like me, I’m often too busy running my business to worry about things that can hurt my business. But, just because we’re not aware of mandates; doesn’t mean we aren’t required to comply." (Lisa Fullerton - Public Policy Co-Director

For legislators to fully understand the impact regulations and mandates have on your business, we need to join together en masse and put a face on small business in Texas.
There is a growing movement from out of state labor groups advocating for California-style policies, which would threaten the livelihood of your business and be devastating for the Texas economy.
