Congress members Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville), Martha Roby (R-Montgomery), and Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville) have been named as “Guardians of Small Business” by the National Federation of Independent Business (“NFIB”).

“I appreciate the National Federation of Independent Business again honoring me as a ‘Guardian of Small Business’ for my 100% voting record on key issues important to America’s small business job creators,” Representative Mo Brooks said. “Small business confidence is at a record high thanks to America’s booming economy. To be clear, I support liberty-based, free enterprise economic policies that ensure prosperity. Conversely, I fight ‘feel good’ socialist policies that ultimately stifle economic growth and force poverty and economic destruction on every nation that recklessly succumbs to its siren song.”

“I was honored to receive the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Guardian of Small Business Award!” Congresswoman Martha Roby said. “I know how vital small businesses are to our communities, and I will continue to fight for policies that strengthen them, not hold them back.”

“Did You know: Alabama is home to 382,524 small businesses,” Congressman Robert Aderholt said on social media. “Yesterday, I was honored to be recognized as a ‘Guardian of Small Business’ by NFIB. I am proud to support small businesses and their owners as they continue to help grow our booming economy.”

“The NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award is presented to Members of Congress who truly vote as champions of small business,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita D. Duggan. “Those who earn this recognition in the House of Representatives have been staunch supporters on the issues that are crucial to the success of small business, like tax cuts, regulatory reform, and lower healthcare costs. They are the representatives small business owners can count on as advocates in Washington, and we’re proud to award these lawmakers the recognition they earned for the 115th Congress.”

The NFIB is America’s premier small business organization.

Brooks’ office said that his 100 percent voting record in support of small business and job creation policies have combined to help create America’s and the Tennessee Valley’s booming economy. Brooks cited the 4.2 percent economic growth rate in the 2nd Quarter of 2018), the extraordinarily low 3.9 percent national unemployment rate, and the “wonderful” 2.9 percent average annual increase in wages earned by America’s working families.
