Small businesses have their guardians, too -- Palazzo, Nunnelee

The National Federation of Independent Business, the nation’s leading small business association, Wednesday named U.S. Reps. Steven Palazzo and Alan Nunnelee Guardians of Small Business for their voting records on behalf of America’s small-business owners in the 113th Congress.

 “Small-business owners are very politically active – paying close attention to how their lawmakers vote on key business issues and stand by those who stand for them,” NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner said,

NFIB’s How Congress Voted” which serves as a report card for members of Congress, was also unveiled this week. The report presents key small-business votes and voting percentages for each lawmaker. Those voting favorably on key small-business issues at least 70 percent of the time during the 113th Congress are eligible for the Guardian award.
