Survey says small business optimism is up in Kansas

Small business optimism has not been as high as it was in November since the 1980s.  That's according a survey by the National Federation of Independent Business. Dan Murray, the Director of the Kansas chapter of the NFIB, was happy with the results of the Small Business Optimism Index released this week.

"Not since the Reagan economy have we seen the optimism index this high, said Murray.  We are at a level near the record set nearly 34 years ago. The tone out of Washington I think are sending strong signals to our members, and I'm certainly hearing that when speaking to our members here in Kansas."

The index gained 3.7 points in November, which Murray classified as "a sharp increase."
