Weekly Legislative Round-Up
July 1, 2010
The Small Biz PAC (Political Action Committee) made its first round of endorsements for the 2010 election cycle. The PAC committee is made up of SBAM members and staff that review candidate surveys sent to each of the candidates, voting records, personal interviews and other relevant criteria in determining which candidates will best serve the interests of small business.
The committee chose not to make an endorsement in the governor’s race at this time.
The committee did make endorsements in 37 of the 110 House seats and 24 of the 38 Senate seats. In addition, SBAM issues the “SBAM Stamp of Approval” in seats where we feel there are multiple candidates who would support our small business agenda. The “Stamp of Approval” was given out in 23 House districts and 3 Senate districts.
Throughout the summer we will continue to evaluate the 2010 elections and will announce further endorsements, especially after the August 3 primary election.
