WASHINGTON - The nation's leading organization committed to protecting and promoting the interests of small business today honored U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) with its ‘Guardian of Small Business' award for his 100 percent voting record in support of small business during the 111th Congress.
"NFIB members will know that Senator Graham's voting record is one of a true small business champion," said National Federation of Independent Business President and CEO Dan Danner. Founded in 1943 as a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, NFIB gives small and independent business owners a voice in shaping public policy issues that affect their business.
"Small business owners pay close attention to how their lawmakers vote on the issues affecting their businesses," continued Danner. "The ‘Guardian' award is a symbol of sincere appreciation from the small business community for votes that supported their ability to own, operate, and grow their businesses."
