NFIB Awards Prestigious Guardian of Small Business Award to Congressman Steve Chabot

NFIB, the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, presented their most prestigious legislative recognition, the Guardian of Small Business Award, to Congressman Steve Chabot.

“The NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award is awarded to lawmakers who small businesses can truly count on,” said NFIB Vice President of Federal Government Relations Kevin Kuhlman. “These Members of the United States House of Representatives are dedicated supporters of the key issues that our members are concerned about and have proven themselves to be real champions for small business. Our policy positions are driven by our members, and we report NFIB Key Votes back to our membership. We are proud to recognize the elected officials from the 116th Congress who earned this distinction by taking pro-small business votes supporting financial assistance programs and tax relief and opposing new regulations and increased labor costs. Small business owners across the country need their support now more than ever during these unprecedented times, and we are grateful to these lawmakers for their leadership.”

“Congressman Chabot has been a true small business champion in the United States House of Representatives. Serving as the ranking member on the House’s Small Business Committee he has a true understanding of the issues our members are dealing with. He has always been accessible to the entrepreneurs of his district and was particularly helpful in assisting them during the hectic PPP Loan process in navigating that system,” said NFIB Ohio Executive Director Roger Geiger.

NFIB’s Guardian of Small Business Award is reserved for lawmakers who vote consistently with small business on the key issues identified by small business owners. Those who voted with small business on key issues 70% or more of the time during the 116th Congress earned the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award. NFIB informs lawmakers in advance which votes will be considered NFIB Key Votes and asks lawmakers to support the consensus views of our members. We also remind them that the results will be reported back to the NFIB membership.
