NFIB/Georgia Presents Guardian of Small Business Award to Sen. Jeff Mullis
The Georgia office of National Federation of Independent Business, the state’s leading small-business association, has presented its coveted Guardian of Small Business Award to state Sen. Jeff Mullis (Chickamauga). He represents the 53rd District.
The Guardian of Small Business award is the most prestigious honor that NFIB bestows on legislators in recognition of their efforts to support small business issues. The NFIB/Georgia Leadership Council, an advisory board comprised of NFIB members, voted to present the award to Mullis for supporting small-business issues in the General Assembly.
Senator Mullis, who chairs the powerful Senate Rules Committee, has been a steadfast defender of Georgia’s small businesses, said Kyle Jackson, state director of NFIB/Georgia.
“Time and again, Senate Mullis has gone out of his way to ask where our members stand on the issues affecting their small businesses,” Jackson said. “He understands why we need to pass legislation that helps our members expand their businesses and create jobs. He not only has helped moved important small-business bills through the Senate but has earned a lifetime 100-percent NFIB voting record
“Senator Mullis understands that creating an environment that encourages small businesses to grow and expand, Georgia can also encourage job growth and help create a better economy,” Jackson said. “On behalf of our members, I’m honored to present him with a Guardian of Small Business Award.”
NFIB has over 7,000 dues-paying members in Georgia, representing a cross section of the state’s economy. Learn more at www.NFIB.com/GA
