(WASHINGTON, D.C.) –On Wednesday, Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. was presented the “Guardian of Small Business” Award for his outstanding support of America’s small business owners in the 114th Congress by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).  NFIB is the nation’s leading advocate for small businesses.

 “Small businesses drive our economy and support our local communities,” said Bucshon. “I’m proud to receive this award on behalf of the nearly 14,000 NFIB members in Indiana for my work to address the challenges facing Hoosier small businesses.”   

“Many elected officials claim that they are champions of small business, but our Guardian Award shows our members and other small business owners who is really fighting for them,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan.  “Based on his voting record, Rep. Bucshon 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. House members and Senators who vote with NFIB members at least 70 percent of the time are eligible for the Guardian Award.   

Bucshon received a 100 voting record during the 114th Congress.

“NFIB is honored to present Rep. Bucshon with this award,” Duggan said.
