Newtek Business Services recently announced the release of the SB Authority Index for November 2011 reaching 109.48 points. Newtek says the SB Authority Index is up .31 percent from October 2011. The report says some states like Wisconsin, Ohio and Oklahoma have declining unemployment rates as governors there have cut spending and budget deficits are being replaced with surpluses. The group says this makes the business environment more certain and friendly to small businesses. Newtek Business Services is a direct distributor of business services and financial products to the small- and medium-sized business market under the Newtek brand.
