Rep. Chris Stewart Receives Guardian of Small Business Award

The National Federation of Independent Business awarded Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) with its Guardian of Small Business Award for his outstanding support of America’s small business owners.

“Many elected officials claim that they are champions of small business, but our Guardian Award shows members and other small business owners who are really fighting for them,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan.  “Based on his voting record, Rep. Stewart is one of the most reliable advocates for small business in Washington.”

The Guardian of Small Business is NFIB’s most prestigious award.  It is reserved for lawmakers who vote consistently with NFIB on the key issues identified by small business owners.  NFIB tracks the votes of every member of Congress. Stewart received a 100 percent voting record during the 114th Congress.

“As a former small business owner, I have always said that small business is the economic engine of the United States,” Stewart said. “Enabling them to flourish is the fastest way to economic prosperity. I will continue to fight for policies that reduce regulatory burdens, and help businesses succeed.
