Miller stood up for small business in the 2021-22 legislative sessions
ST. PAUL, MN, Aug. 12, 2022—The state’s major small business organization, the National Federation of Independent Business, or NFIB, presented Senate Majority Leader Jeremy Miller (Winona) with the prestigious Guardian of Small Business Award.
“As a small business owner himself, Senator Miller understands first-hand the challenges that Main Street is facing right now,” said John Reynolds, NFIB Minnesota State Director. “Now more than ever, small business needs strong advocates in the Minnesota Legislature, and they have one in Jeremy Miller. Thanks to Miller’s leadership this year, small employers across the state were spared from painful tax hikes and expensive government mandates.”
Miller earned the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award with a 100% score on the NFIB Minnesota Voting Record for 2021-22. He is one of only four lawmakers who received the Guardian Award Statue for their extraordinary work on behalf of small business.
The Guardian of Small Business Award is reserved for legislators who consistently vote with Main Street on the key issues as identified by small business owners. Minnesota lawmakers who voted with small business on key issues 80% or more of the time during the 2021-22 legislative session earned the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award.
Lawmakers are informed prior to Key Votes of consensus positions developed through NFIB’s one member, one vote policy and asked to support the priorities of small business with their vote. Key Votes are recorded in the biennial NFIB Minnesota Voting Record and distributed to the more than 10,000 small businesses that belong to NFIB here.
