WASHINGTON, D.C. - The National Federation of Independent Business recently named U.S. Rep. Nan Hayworth (NY-19) a Guardian of Small Business for her outstanding voting record on behalf of America’s small business owners in the 112th Congress.
NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner praised Rep. Hayworth for “standing for small business.” In presenting the group’s Guardian of Small Business Award, Danner said, “Small-business owners pay close attention to how their lawmakers vote on the issues affecting their businesses and employees and stand by those who stand for them.”
“In the 112th Congress, Rep. Hayworth proved that she is willing to stand up and do big things for small business,” said Danner. “Guardian-award winners are genuine small-business champions, consistently voting to promote and protect the right of small-business owners to own, operate and grow their businesses.”
NFIB will present Guardian awards to 245 Representatives who voted favorably on key small business issues at least 70 percent of the time during the 112th Congress.
