Senator Brady’s Pro-Jobs Record
Recognized by State Business Groups
Senator Bill Brady has been recognized by two leading state business organizations for his support of pro-jobs policies and his work to provide greater economic opportunities for Illinois families.
The Illinois Chamber of Commerce named him a 2012 “Champion of Free Enterprise” and the National Federation of Independent Business/Illinois gave him its “Guardian of Small Business” award for his legislative votes and efforts to strengthen the state jobs climate.
Chamber President and CEO Doug Whitley said Brady and other legislators “demonstrated a serious commitment to government reforms that are essential to reversing our state’s negative image for excessive political corruption and anti-business policies.”
NFIB State Director Kim Clarke Maisch said, “Everyone is focused on the national election and that’s very important, but we can’t lose sight of the fact that small businesses are affected very directly by what comes out of Springfield . Small business owners can look around at Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio and see real reforms that make it easier for their counterparts to compete.”
“These organizations are dedicated to promoting a stronger economy in Illinois, and I’m honored by their recognition,” said Brady, Assistant Senate Republican Leader.
“I’m focused on helping reform Illinois’ business and government policies so that our companies can grow and our families can prosper. Fiscal stability, rather than over-taxing, over-borrowing and over-spending, is critical to our success in making Illinois an attractive state for business investment and growth.”
