WASHINGTON, D.C. – Idaho First District Congressman Raúl Labrador today was presented the Guardian of Small Business Award, given by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business association. Labrador received the award for his outstanding voting record on behalf of America’s small-business owners in the 112th Congress.
“I’m honored to receive this award because it says that I’m doing what I was sent here to do,” Labrador said. “I am proud to represent the people and the small businesses that make Idaho great and I have maintained a voting record that consistently speaks to the values we hold as Idahoans. Small-business owners understand what it means to work hard and invest in their communities and I am very proud to stand with those people who drive our economy and our state.”
In presenting the group’s coveted Guardian of Small Business Award, NFIB President and CEO Dan 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. The record shows that Congressman Labrador is a true champion of small business, having stood strong on the key small-business votes in the 112th Congress.”
Danner praised Labrador for standing for small business and maintaining a pro-growth voting record.
