CHICAGO — The National Automatic Merchandising Assn. (NAMA) has endorsed H.R. 4841, the Small Business Tax Relief and Job Growth Act of 2010. Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D-NY) introduced the legislation on March 21. Velazquez serves as chairperson of the House Small Business Committee.

This bill addresses these concerns by giving small businesses tax relief and allowing them to create jobs.”
Highlights of the proposed legislation include:
