Presents Pasco Legislator with “Guardian of Small Business” Award

June 15, 2016, Tallahassee, FL – At a
lunch meeting of small business owners today in Land O’Lakes, the National
Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), Florida’s leading small business
association, presented Representative Richard Corcoran with a Guardian of Small
Business award for his efforts to oppose Obamacare expansion in Florida.

“Speaker-Designate Corcoran’s opposition to a billion dollar expansion of
Obamacare in Florida has earned him the praise of small business owners across
Florida” said NFIB/Florida Executive Director Bill Herrle. “Speaker-Designate
Corcoran’s leadership saved small business owners from future tax hikes that
could have put their employees’ livelihoods in jeopardy.”

Corcoran earned a 100 percent Voting Record with NFIB/Florida from 2015-2016.

“Almost 70% of all new jobs are created by
small businesses in America.  To guard those entrepreneurs from the
stifling hand of government does more than reward their risk and hard work, it
protects the moms and dads who rely on these businesses to feed their families.
It also ensures a stable future for working Floridians and
vibrancy to our communities, “said Speaker-Designate Corcoran. “I am honored to
be recognized by the NFIB but I am more honored to do my part to keep America

The NFIB Guardian of Small Business award is the association’s highest honor
given to lawmakers whose work reflects support and advocacy for the small
business community during the previous legislative session.

NFIB/Florida will be announcing additional Guardian Award winners throughout
Florida this summer.
