WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley has received a “2012 Guardian of Small Business” award from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) for his 100 percent voting record on behalf of small-business owners.
“The record shows that Senator Grassley is a true champion of small businesses, having stood strong the key small-business votes in the 112th Congress,” said NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner. “This award reflects our members’ appreciation for supporting the NFIB pro-growth agenda for small business.”
Accepting the award this week, Grassley said, “Small businesses drive America’s economy by creating 70 percent of new jobs. With Americans experiencing the 42 consecutive month of unemployment above eight percent, it’s time for leadership in Washington that will provide the kind of certainty and confidence small businesses need to make investment decisions that lead to hiring more workers.”
A non-profit, non-partisan organization founded in 1943, the NFIB gives small and independent business owners a voice in shaping the public policy issues that affect their business.
