PHOENIX, June 11, 2020—The report card is out and now everyone can know which Arizona senators and representatives can back up their claim to be true friends of small businesses.

Vince Leach and Rep. Ben Toma, were honored June 10 with NFIB Guardian of Small Business awards for putting in the extra mile for small business.
