Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Susan Collins recently received the biennial Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) for her support of America’s small business owners in the 114th Congress.
“I am delighted to receive this award recognizing my work to promote small businesses, our nation’s job creators,” said Senator Collins. “I will continue to advocate for small businesses in Congress and support efforts to help small businesses start, grow, and prosper.
“Many elected officials claim that they are champions of small business, but our Guardian Award shows our members and other small business owners who is really fighting for them,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan. “Based on her voting record, Sen. Collins is one of the most reliable advocates for small business in Washington. NFIB is honored to present Sen. Collins with this award.”
The Guardian of Small Business is NFIB’s most prestigious award. It is reserved for lawmakers who vote to support key issues that are important to small business owners.
