Sen. Judson Hill (R-Marietta), Sen. Hunter Hill (R-Atlanta) and Sen. Lindsey Tippins (R–Marietta) were recognized by the National Federation of Independent Business for their pro-business voting records during the 2013-14 legislative sessions. NFIB awarded the senators with a 100 percent rating due to their strong support of small business issues. NFIB is Georgia’s leading small-business association, with more than7,500 dues-paying members representing a cross section of the state’s economy.

“I’m honored to fight for small business employees and to bring jobs and needed relief to working Georgians,” said Sen. Judson Hill.

“Small businesses are a vital part of the successes of our economy,” said Sen. Hunter Hill. “I am thankful to NFIB and to all my colleagues who continuously work to sustain small business not only in Georgia, but throughout the country.”

“It’s no secret that small businesses are the true engine for economic growth and prosperity,” said Sen. Tippins, who is also the chairman of the Senate Education and Youth Committee as well as a small business owner for more than 45 years. “It is an honor to be recognized for my commitment to growing our economy by such an outstanding organization of small business owners. I will always do my part in the state legislature to ensure these common sense principles continue to thrive under the Gold Dome.”

Kyle Jackson, state director of NFIB Georgia, said each of the senators clearly understand what small business means to Georgia’s economy. By supporting small business, Jackson said, the senators are supporting working families and the community.

NFIB/Georgia’s 2013-14 Voting Record included 12 key issues, including workers’ comp reform, tax relief, employment law, preserving Georgia’s status as a right-to-work state and support of a federal balanced-budget amendment. The full report may be viewed at www.NFIB.com/GA.

NFIB was founded in 1943 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization to give small and independent business owners a voice in shaping public policy issues. NFIB’s mission is to promote and protect the right of members to own, operate and grow their businesses.

Sen. Judson Hill represents the 32nd Senate District and Sen. Hunter Hill represents the 6th Senate District. Both districts include portions of Cobb and Fulton counties. Sen. Tippins represents the 37th Senate District, which includes portions of Cobb County.
