NFIB Presents Guardian of Small Business Award to Rep. French Hill

Date: October 29, 2020

NFIB, the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, today presented its most prestigious legislative recognition, the Guardian of Small Business Award, to Rep. French Hill. NFIB State Director Sylvester Smith presented the award to Representative Hill at McLehaney Equipment, an NFIB member business in Haskell.

“NFIB presents its Guardian of Small Business Award to lawmakers who small businesses can depend on,” Smith said. “Congressman Hill has supported Arkansas’s job creators on the issues that matter most to our members and has proven himself to be a real champion for small business.”

NFIB Vice President of Federal Government Relations Kevin Kuhlman said, “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 like Congressman French Hill 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.”

Congressman Hill said, “I thank the NFIB for its recognition of my strong record supporting policies to spur small business growth across Arkansas and the nation. As a life-long entrepreneur and 16 years of running a locally owned business in Arkansas, I know what our local job creators need and I am committed to helping them succeed. I appreciate the NFIB’s work advocating on behalf of small businesses and the millions who are employed by them.”

The National Federation of Independent Business’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.
