NFIB polling members for state legislative agenda

Elections are over – unless you’re a small business owner in Colorado.

The National Federation of Independent Businesses is polling its members about issues that the next session of the legislature needs to deal with.

The group annually polls members on state and federal issues that affect their operations. NFIB has 7,000 members in Colorado.

Their 2012 ballot asks:

Would you support expanding the state’s sales tax on goods to include business and professional services to help support the state budget?

Should NFIB support reforms that require labor unions to get annual written permission from each union member prior to using a portion of their dues for political activities?

Should maximum unemployment benefits be reduced if the unemployment trust fund nears bankruptcy?

Do you support legislation that would make it illegal for employers to discriminate against persons who are unemployed when making hiring decisions?

Should Colorado privatize some highways, roads, tunnels and bridges?

The poll is being mailed, faxed, or emailed based on member preference. Results from the poll will be released publicly.
