Sinema Discusses Job Growth With National Federation of Independent Business

May 10, 2019

WASHINGTON — Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema met this week with Juanita Duggan, the President and CEO of the National Federation of Independent Business, continuing a long partnership of working to cut red tape and support Arizona small businesses and job creators.

“Small businesses power Arizona’s economy. We’re continuing our partnership with the National Federation of Independent Business to cut red tape and give small businesses across our state the tools to grow and hire more Arizonans,” said Sinema. 

Sinema serves as the ranking member of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs and Federal Management, dedicated to improving the efficiency and effectiveness of governmental agencies.

Sinema has led a bipartisan effort in the U.S. House and the Senate to repeal the Health Insurance Tax, a harmful tax for small businesses that raises health care costs.  

Sinema recently introduced the SMART Act, which requires government agencies to plan prospectively, improve regulations, remove unnecessary burdens, and increase transparency and accessibility for Arizona businesses.
