Thank you to the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) for the letter of endorsement of Senator Gary Dahms for Minnesota Senate District 16.
The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), enthusiastically endorsed Senator Gary Dahms in his race for the Minnesota Senate in district 16.
“Senator Dahms has cast many critical votes for small business and has truly shown his level of appreciation for the contributions that our members make to Minnesota’s economy,” said Minnesota NFIB State Director Mike Hickey. “Senator Dahms understands that small business is the lifeblood of Minnesota’s economy and he has consistently fought for the men and women of the small business community.”
Senator Dahms has made many key votes for small business including:
– Opposed legislation to increase already high business property taxes.
– Supported legislation for employers that provided a one-time $258 million dollar unemployment insurance tax credit that will reduce taxes for most businesses by 27-29%.
– Voted to hold the line on state spending which gave Minnesota the third smallest state budget increase in the last 50 years.
“He has been a true ally for the small business community and we are urging business owners and
constituents in district 16 to vote for him on November 8th” concluded Hickey.
Note that Dahms’ endorsement comes from NFIB’s Save America’s Free Enterprise Trust (SAFE), the
association’s political action committee, and is based on positions regarding key small-business issues
including health care, taxes, and labor and regulatory issues.
