Washington, D.C.-- Today, U.S. Representative Mike Coffman (R-CO) was presented with the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) “Guardian of Small Business” Award. The award recognizes Rep. Coffman’s work for his voting record supporting NFIB’s agenda on behalf of America’s small business owners.
"As a former small business owner, I know firsthand the challenges employers face just to keep the lights on and the doors open. This recognition is on behalf of all small businesses in Colorado, and across this nation, that are the backbone to our economy," said Coffman.
The NFIB is America’s leading small business advocacy association whose mission is to promote and protect small business owners right to own, operate and grow business operations.
“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. “These men and women in the House of Representatives have been staunch supporters on the issues that affect our members, like regulatory reform and healthcare cost relief. They made tax relief for small businesses a reality. They are the Representatives small business owners can count on in Washington, and we’re proud to award these lawmakers the recognition they earned for the 115th Congress.”
The NFIB awards the “Guardian of Small Business” Award based on rankings it gives members of Congress for “key votes” impacting small business during each session of Congress.
