Edmunds receives high NFIB score

James Edmunds

HALIFAX — Nicole Riley, state director of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), announced Aug. 11 that Del. James Edmunds, R-Halifax, earned a score of 100 percent on the 2016-17 NFIB/Virginia Voting Record. According to a press release, NFIB/Virginia is the commonwealth’s leading small business association, with 6,700 small-business members statewide.

“What this means is that Delegate Edmunds has stood up for Virginia’s job creators time and again on important issues such as addressing the rising costs of health care, opposing efforts to place additional mandates on the backs of small business and reforming Virginia’s regulatory structure,” Riley said in the release.

Edmunds is being challenged in the November election by Democrat Jamaal Johnston, of Meherrin.
