Receives 100% score for his support of small businesses and promoting a better economy in California
Today, I was honored by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) with a 100% score for my voting record on small business issues in the 2013-14 Legislative Session. The score reflects my unwavering support of California’s small businesses and creating more job opportunities throughout the state.
As a small business owner, I am honored to receive such high recognition from the National Federation of Independent Business. Small businesses employ more than 90% of all of Californians and are the foundation of our economy, exemplifying the California Dream. It is important that we continue to fight for policies that promote and reassure small businesses. I look forward to continuing to work with NFIB in providing a voice for small businesses in Sacramento.
As a non-partisan organization, NFIB tracks the votes of each member of the state Assembly and Senate on legislation that would have a significant impact on California small businesses. They then compile a voting record to provide a critical evaluation of legislator’s support of enhancing California’s economy, specifically through small businesses.
“As a small business owner himself, Assemblyman Allen understands the challenges that hard working Californians face in this regulatory environment,” said John Kabateck, Executive Director of NFIB/California. “It is our honor to have Assemblyman Allen as a strong supporter of our mission to promote and protect the right of Californian’s to own, operate, and grow their businesses.”
A nonpartisan, nonprofit association, NFIB has 350,000 small and independent business owners across the nation. NFIB research and polls, such as its monthly Small Business Economic Trends, have been used and cited by Federal Reserve officials, Congress, state legislatures and top gubernatorial and presidential administration officials as one of the more valuable barometers of the American economy.
