WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Federation of Independent Business honored Congressman Chris Stewart Wednesday as a recipient of the Guardian of Small Business Award for his strong record of supporting pro-business, pro-growth legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Stewart said:

It’s a privilege to be honored with this award. As a former small business owner, I understand first-hand how important it is to reduce the regulatory burdens placed on businesses and focus on pro-business policies that will create jobs and grow our economy. I will continue to fight every day for policies that will provide businesses with certainty to keep our family, friends and neighbors working.

“I have always said that small business is the economic engine of the United States,” Stewart continued. “Enabling small businesses to flourish is the fastest pathway back to a full economic recovery.”

NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner praised Rep. Stewart for “standing up for small business.” When presenting the group’s coveted Guardian of Small Business Award, Danner said, “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.”

“The record shows that Rep. Stewart is a true champion of small business, supporting the votes that matter in the 113th Congress,” Danner said. “This award reflects our members’ appreciation for supporting the NFIB pro-growth agenda for small business.”

Stewart has been previously awarded the Spirit of Free Enterprise Award from U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
