Frank Wagner Earns 91% Voting Record from NFIB/Virginia
Nicole Riley, state director of the National Federation of Independent Business, said today that Senator Frank Wagner has earned a score of 91 percent on the 2010-11 NFIB/Virginia Voting Record.
NFIB/Virginia is the Commonwealth’s leading small-business association, with 6,000 small-business members statewide.
“What this means is that Senator Wagner has stood up for Virginia’s job creators time and again on important issues such as tax relief, health-care reform and the right of employees to cast secret ballots in union organization elections,” 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.
“Our members truly appreciate the efforts of legislators such as Frank Wagner to help Virginia’s small-businesses grow and create jobs,” Riley said.
“I look forward to working with NFIB and other pro-business groups throughout Virginia,” said Sen. Frank Wagner, “who share my vision of robust job creation despite actions in Washington.”
