The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) / Texas recognized Leighton as a Texas legislator who earned 100 percent in voting on legislation that would have had an impact on small business.
“These distinguished lawmakers understand and value the true backbone of Texas’ economy, small business owners, and the impact public policy changes will have on these owners’ abilities to own, operate, and grow their businesses,” said NFIB Executive Director Will Newton. “Lawmakers who vote with small business during session are fulfilling their campaign promises to keep the Texas economy robust, as small businesses account for 96 percent of all businesses in the state.”
