The Oregon Small Business Council took center stage this week as Jim Houser of Hawthorne Auto Clinic emceed a nationwide press call with Representative Earl Blumenauer (OR-3) and four small business owners from other states who have experienced difficult increases in health insurance costs.

Our friends at the Main Street Alliance have put the audio from the call up online for you to hear.

On January 28, the Oregon Small Business Council and our friends at the Main Street Alliance released the findings of our Main Street Policy Pulse survey of small business owners.

The survey found strong support among small business owners for comprehensive financial reform and the creation of a Consumer Financial Protection Agency.

Now we have developed this infographic to better display the results of the survey.
