NSBA Congratulates Winners of 2022 Election
Washington, D.C. – The National Small Business Association (NSBA) applauds the winners of the 2022 elections and looks forward to working with the new incoming and returning Members of Congress. While a handful of key elections have not yet been formally called, leaving unclear which party will be in control of the House and Senate, one thing is clear: lawmakers need to move forward on doing the business of the American people.
Below is a statement from NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken on the elections.
“I’d like to congratulate all the new and returning lawmakers who won their races. This midterm election surely will prove to be a pivotal one and your efforts moving the country forward are imperative now.
“NSBA is a staunchly nonpartisan organization. We work with anyone who supports pro-small-business policies, and we take our marching orders directly from our small-business members. We will work with Republicans and Democrats alike and hope every lawmaker sworn in this coming January will make that same pledge.
“We all deserve a functioning political system and there are simple steps lawmakers can take. I urge leadership in both parties to seek opportunities for members to interact, especially with their counterparts across the aisle. There must be a strong committee process followed by fair and robust floor debate in both chambers.
“According to a recent NSBA survey, today, 88 percent of small businesses say politics have become more partisan, up from 82 in 2016 – I urge you to become part of the solution.”
Celebrating more than 80 years in operation, NSBA is staunchly nonpartisan and uniquely member-driven. We advocate on behalf of America’s small-business owners and entrepreneurs. NSBA's 65,000 members represent every state and every industry in the U.S., and we are proud to be the nation’s first small-business advocacy organization. Please visit www.nsba.biz.
