The Louisiana office of the National Federation of Independent Business has presented its coveted Guardian of Small Business Award to state Reps. Neil Abramson and Julie Stokes.
The awards were presented today at a reception at the Pentagon Barracks in Baton Rouge as part of the 2014 NFIB Small Business Day at the Capitol.
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/Louisiana Leadership Council voted to present the awards to Abramson and Stokes for supporting small-business issues in the General Assembly.
“Representative Abramson and Representative Stokes are rock-solid defenders of small business in the Legislature,” said Dawn Starns, state director of NFIB/Louisiana, the state’s leading small-business association. “Our members truly appreciate their support.”
