National Federation of Independent Business releases scores for key votes in the House
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna (NY-24) was recognized by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) for his support of small business issues during the first session of the 112th Congress.
Hanna received a perfect score for the votes he cast. Among others, he supported a Balanced Budget Amendment and the Regulatory Accountability Act. NFIB released scored votes that took place between Jan. 3, 2011 through Dec. 20, 2011.
This is the second perfect score Hanna received this Congress for supporting business issues. He was honored by the U.S. Chamber with its Spirit of Enterprise Award and also received a perfect score on the Chamber's key issues.
"As a longtime businessman in upstate New York, I fully support taking practical steps to ease the burden on our small businesses so they can do what they do best – compete and create jobs in our community," Rep. Hanna said. "Small businesses are what our local economy is based on and they keep our neighbors working. It's easy to support policies that let small businesses thrive."
"NFIB is pleased to see that Congressman Hanna has taken a strong stand to protect small business," said Mike Durant, NFIB State Director for New York. "NFIB steadfastly advocates for the rights of our members to own, operate, and grow their business, and our interim report on the initial key votes of the 112th Congress shows that Congressman Hanna is working on behalf of small business."
