OKLAHOMA CITY – House Majority Leader Rep. Mike Sanders today was notified that he achieved a 100 percent NFIB voting record in the 2017-2018 legislative session on issues that impact Oklahoma small businesses.
The voting record is compiled every two years on every member of the Oklahoma Legislature by the NFIB, a national small business advocacy organization. Only votes directly impacting small businesses in Oklahoma are considered.
“Small business is the lifeblood of our state and national economy,” said Sanders, R-Kingfisher. “I’m pleased for this recognition of my voting record, but I’m even more pleased to stand with the men and women who own and operate small business in House District 59 and across our state who benefit from a free market economy and the cutting of over-burdensome regulation.”
NFIB’s Oklahoma Voting Record includes votes on seven key issues, including property rights, health insurance, and lawsuit reform.
The 2017-2018 NFIB Oklahoma Voting Record includes legislation regarding:
- The sale of insurance across state lines
- Protecting businesses from website accessibility claims
- Holding trespassers liable for damages
- Agri-business exemption from federal truck log rules
- Privatization within state agencies
NFIB State Director Jerrod Shouse said, “Mike Sanders clearly recognizes the challenges of running a small business. By consistently supporting small business and free enterprise, Mike Sanders supports entrepreneurs and working families back in his district and across the state.”
