State Rep. Darren Bailey (R-Xenia) met with a representative of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) in his district office on Friday to discuss issues and concerns of the small business community in Illinois. Mr. Casey Tibbs also presented Rep. Bailey with his NFIB Membership plaque to show that he is a friend of small businesses.

“There are many issues that impact our business community in Illinois but some issues are not one-size-fits-all and small businesses are impacted differently when it comes to topics like the minimum wage, healthcare costs, regulatory mandates and even taxes,” said Rep. Bailey. “I appreciate the insight provided by the NFIB and the impact that something like the progressive income tax amendment would have if voters approve it in the November general election.”

Begun in 1943, NFIB is a non-profit association of over 325,000 members that works to defend the right of small business owners to own and operate their businesses without undue government interference.
