Guardian of Small Business Award given to lawmakers who vote to support small business
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LANSING, MI (Sept. 26, 2022) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), Michigan’s leading small business advocacy organization, today presented their most prestigious legislative recognition, the Guardian of Small Business Award, to members of the Michigan House and Senate.
“The NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award is presented to legislators who have proven themselves to be real champions of small business,” said NFIB State Director Amanda Fisher. “These NFIB Guardians each scored 100% on the NFIB Michigan 2021-22 Voting Record, demonstrating their commitment to small business. They also worked behind the scenes to help further NFIB’s Main Street Agenda.”
“These lawmakers voted to give needed tax and regulatory relief during these challenging economic times and rein in state government overreach,” noted Fisher. “They consistently stood against the governor on policies that would hurt small business, truly earning the title ‘Guardian.’”
NFIB is unique in that it only represents small and independent businesses, and our members decide our policy positions. 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. Click HERE to view the complete Michigan 2021-22 Voting Record.
