Survey/ Travelers Event

Our 11th annual survey is closed.  We received 676 responses.  This year small businesses seem to be more optimistic than the last few years, and more are indicating their receipts have gone up over the last year.  The top six  issues were the same as last year. They were:

  • The Economy
  • Health Cost and access
  • The quality of Public Education
  • Regulations
  • Infrastructure
  • Reducing State Taxes

It was also interesting to see that for the first time there was more support for public financing of health insurance (46.53%) than opposition (37.16%).

For those of you in the Orange County area Travelers is doing an event March 20th in Irvine which is cosponsored by Small Business California, NFIB, and the SBDC in Orange County.  Hector Barreto, SBA Administrator under George W Bush, will be the keynote speaker.
