SENATOR INGEBRIGTSEN RECEIVES HIGH MARKS FOR SMALL BUSINESS RECORD

St. Paul, MN — Senator Ingebrigtsen (R-Alexandria) has received high marks from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) for his strong voting record in support of Minnesota’s small business owners.

“I am humbled to be recognized by NFIB for my commitment to protecting small businesses in Minnesota,” said Senator Ingebrigtsen. “Small businesses employ roughly half of all Minnesotans, but unfortunately they have struggled over the past 6 years. The attempts to raise taxes and implement policies like MNsure make life harder for employers to do business in Minnesota. I am proud of my record defending small businesses, and I will continue to do what I can to make our state a more attractive place for businesses of all sizes.”

NFIB is a leading advocate for small businesses and policies that promote small business growth and prosperity. The rankings come from their 2014 scorecard, in which Senator Ingebrigtsen received a score of 100 percent.

NFIB compiled their rankings based on legislators’ votes on a number of bills affecting small businesses, including tax bills, the minimum wage increase, MNsure, and daycare provider unionization. You can view the scorecard at this address: http://www.nfib.com/pdfs/Minnesota-voting-record.pdf.
