Washington,
DC (September 14, 2016)

(NFIB)
, the nation’s leading advocate for small businesses, today
awarded  members of Congress from Florida
with its biennial Guardian of Small
Business
Award for his or her
outstanding support of America’s small business owners in the 114th

elected officials claim that they are champions of small business, but our
