Every year the National Federation of Independent Business, America’s largest and leading small-business association, polls its members on state and national issues vital to their ability to own, operate and grow their enterprises. Results from the polls center NFIB’s lobbying positions in Washington, D.C. and in Salem. NFIB has 350,000 dues-paying members nationwide, including nearly 7,000 in Oregon. Results from the NFIB-member ballots are released after a statistically valid sample is reached.
