DES MOINES (March 30, 2017): In response Governor Branstad’s action today on preemption, the following statement may be attributed to the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Iowa State Director, Matt Everson:
Governor Branstad’s signing of today’s bill is yet another example of his longstanding support of the small business community. Our members sincerely appreciate his willingness to stand shoulder to shoulder with the state’s most vulnerable employers by ensuring that labor costs are stabilized throughout the state.
Small business owners thrive when they can operate in an environment that is predictable is consistent. Iowa’s new pre-emption law will protect both employers and employees, and we thank lawmakers throughout the legislature for their dedication and support of this issue.
