With so much going right for small business at the beginning of the year, now is not the time to hinder its job-creating successes
The 65th Wyoming Legislature (2019-2020) opened for business Jan. 8, 2019, with four immediate challenges for NFIB.
Fight Tax Increases
NFIB will work to prevent new taxes from falling on the backs of small-business owners due to the Wyoming Legislature’s desire to diversify tax revenues. NFIB is adamantly opposed to current attempts to impose a Gross Receipt Tax and certain taxes applicable to specific industries such as restaurants and lodging.
Advocate for Access to Affordable Healthcare
Support proposals for a fair, accessible, competitive, and affordable health insurance market in Wyoming.
Control the Cost of Regulation
Regulatory costs constitute a hidden tax on every citizen in Wyoming. NFIB will work to ensure the regulatory burden does not compound, driving down the standard of living in Wyoming while driving up costs.
Stop Minimum Wage Increase
When labor costs go up, all costs go up. This forces businesses to offset costs by reducing the labor force.
