Rasmusson stood up for small business in the 2021-22 legislative sessions
ST. PAUL, MN, July 14, 2022—The state’s major small business organization, the National Federation of Independent Business, or NFIB, today presented Representative Jordan Rasmusson (Fergus Falls) with the prestigious Guardian of Small Business Award.
“Now more than ever, Main Street needs strong advocates in the Minnesota Legislature, and they have one in Representative Jordan Rasmusson,” said John Reynolds, NFIB Minnesota State Director. “Thanks to Jordan’s leadership, small businesses were protected from painful tax hikes, more red tape, and burdensome mandates.”
Rasmusson earned the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award with a 100% score on the NFIB Minnesota Voting Record for 2021-22.
The Guardian of Small Business Award is reserved for legislators who vote consistently with small business on the key issues 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 sessions 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.
