Small businesses owners stand with Fitzgerald in recall race

Watertown… The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), Wisconsin’s leading association of small business owners, has formally endorsed Sen. Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) in the 13th Senate District recall election

“Small businesses are a major part of our state’s economy, and I am honored to have their support in this recall election,” said Fitzgerald.  “Our reforms have truly benefited small businesses in Wisconsin.  Our state’s unemployment rate continues to fall, and is currently at its lowest level since 2008.  This wouldn’t be possible without the growth and success of small businesses right here in Wisconsin.”

A number of key changes to benefit small businesses were passed over the last year and a half, including:

  • Lawsuit reforms to protect small business owners from frivolous job-killing litigation
  • Targeted tax credits to small businesses that create jobs right here in Wisconsin
  • An expansion of the WHEDA small business loan program to help more small businesses get the capital they need to grow

“Wisconsin small businesses are creating jobs again because of the reforms that were passed under Sen. Fitzgerald’s leadership,” said Bill G. Smith, State Director of NFIB.  “Sen. Fitzgerald is the only candidate in the 13th Senate District race that can be counted on to stand up for small business owners, and we are proud to support him.”
