NFIB: Delegate James Edmunds Earns 100% Rating on Small Business Issues
RICHMOND, August 11, 2017- Nicole Riley, State Director of the National Federation of Independent Business, announced today that Delegate James Edmunds earned a score of 100% on the 2016-2017 NFIB/Virginia Voting Record. NFIB/Virginia is the commonwealth's leading small-business association, with 6,700 small-business members statewide.
"What this means is that Delegate Edmunds has stood up for Virginia's job creators time and again on important issues such as addressing the rising costs of healthcare, opposing efforts to place additional mandates on the backs of small business and reforming Virginia's regulatory structure," Riley said.
Small businesses account for 98 percent of the commonwealth's employers and employ nearly half of Virginia's non-government workforce, according to federal government statistics.
