Huizenga Recognized as “Guardian of Small Business” by NFIB
This past week, Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-02) was recognized by the National Federation of Independent Business as a “Guardian of Small Business” based on his voting record in support of pro-growth measures that boost job creation, reduce regulatory red tape, and lower health care costs. The NFIB is the nation’s leading small business association. After receiving the award Congressman Huizenga released the following statement.
"I am honored to receive this recognition from the NFIB,” said Congressman Huizenga. “As a small business owner as well as an NFIB Member, I understand how important small businesses are to West Michigan’s economy and how cutting taxes and reducing regulatory red tape make a real difference for small business job creators and the employees who work there.”
“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 issues that are crucial 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 during the 115th Congress.”
