State Sen. Jane Nelson

AUSTIN, Texas -- The National Federation of Independent Business, Texas' leading small business advocacy group, has named Texas State Sen. Jane Nelson (Flower Mound) winner of its 2008 Guardian of Small Business Award.

Nelson is the only Texas senator to earn a 100 percent voting record with NFIB/Texas, voting in favor of small business owners on nine key issues during the 2007 legislative session.

"Her record as a staunch advocate for the small business community speaks for itself," said NFIB/Texas Executive Director Will Newton. "Senator Nelson continues to prove to be a steadfast friend that NFIB members can rely on in the Texas Legislature."

Nelson knows first hand of the difficulties small business owners face.

"Being part of a family-owned business, this award is special to me because it comes from our small business owners, who I believe represent the backbone of Texas' economy," Nelson said. "While it is important to attract major corporations to our state, we should never forget that most Texas families rely on small businesses for their livelihood. Their success is critical to our future."

NFIB/Texas staff presented Nelson with the Guardian Award in Lewisville after she addressed the government affairs committees of all Denton County chambers of commerce.
