NFIB Awards Prestigious Guardian of Small Business Award to Congressman Steve Stivers
Columbus, OH (Sept. 17, 2020) – NFIB, the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, presented their most prestigious legislative recognition, the Guardian of Small Business Award, to Congressman Steve Stivers.
“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.”
“Now, more than ever, our small businesses need our support. They are the backbone of our economy, and without them, we cannot hope to rebound from this pandemic. I’m proud to be a Guardian of Small Business, and I promise to continue to fight for the job creators and entrepreneurs here in Ohio and across the country,” said Congressman Steve Stivers.
