NH Senate Republicans - Another Business Group Flunks Senate Democrats

NFIB Joins BIA in Saying Senate Democrats Have Hurt State’s Businesses

Concord, NH – Democrats in the state senate received failing grades today from another non-partisan business group for their 2010 votes against small businesses.  This marks the second time in two weeks an independent business group has criticized senate Democrats for hurting businesses and job creation.

“What the senate Democrats fail to realize is that small business is the engine that drives the New Hampshire economy and creates jobs for New Hampshire citizens,” said Senate Minority Leader Peter Bragdon (R-Milford).  “By failing to address the needs of the state’s small business, the Democrats are failing to address the number one issue facing the state’s citizens, creating jobs.”

The 2010 Legislative Scorecard of the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) shows 12 of the 14 senate Democrats receiving Fs for their votes on small business issues, with the other two Democrats earning Ds.  Almost all senate Republicans received an A-plus in the scorecard. 

Last week, the New Hampshire Business and Industry Association (BIA) released their own scorecard, which also gave Democrats failing grades.
