U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today was awarded the “Guardian of Small Business” Award from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). Upon receiving the award, Upton commented:

“This is a big honor,” said Upton. “Small businesses are leading the way in job-creation, economic growth, and incredible innovations. Here in Southwest Michigan I regularly meet with our local small business owners to hear what’s on their mind. My goal is to always champion bipartisan policies that spur local growth and economic opportunities. That’s when our small businesses thrive.”

“The NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award is presented to Members of Congress who truly vote as champions of small business,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita D. Duggan. “Those who earn this recognition in the House of Representatives have been staunch supporters on the issues that are critical to the success of small business, like tax cuts, regulatory reform, and lower healthcare costs. They are the representatives small business owners can count on as advocates in Washington, and we’re proud to award these lawmakers the recognition they earned for the 115th Congress.”
