At a ceremony held at the U.S. Capitol recently, the National Federation of Independent Business honored Congressman Steve Pearce with Guardian of Small Business awards for his outstanding support of America’s small-business owners during the 114th Congress.
“Many elected officials claim that they are champions of small business, but our Guardian Award shows our members and other small business owners who is really fighting for them,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan. “Based on his voting record,
Congressman Pearce is one of the most reliable advocates for small business in Washington.”
The Guardian of Small Business is NFIB’s most prestigious award. It is reserved for lawmakers who vote consistently with NFIB on the key issues identified by small business owners. NFIB tracks the votes of every member of Congress. House members and Senators who vote with NFIB members at least 70 percent of the time are eligible for the Guardian Award.
