PHOTO RELEASE: NFIB Names Webster a Champion of Small Business
Washington, D.C. — On Wednesday, Florida Congressman Daniel Webster, R-Clermont, was once again awarded with the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Guardian of Small Business Award. A 40+ year member of the NFIB, Congressman Webster is recognized for supporting legislation and initiatives that champion small business.
“Small businesses are the backbone of America’s economy and are a vital part of our economic prosperity,” said Rep. Webster. “As a small business owner myself, I know firsthand the challenges small business owners face daily. I have and will continue to advocate for legislation that will remove unnecessary government obstacles and assists small business owners and their employees achieve success.”
“The NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award is presented to Members of Congress who have proven themselves to be real champions of small business,” said NFIB President and CEO Brad Close. “This Congress, small businesses emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic but faced continual threats of high inflation, workforce shortages, and supply chain disruptions. These NFIB Guardians demonstrated strong support of small businesses on key issues. NFIB is unique in that we only represent small and independent businesses, and our members decide our policy positions. We are proud to recognize the elected officials from the 117th Congress who earned this distinction by taking pro-small business votes that supported an extension of the Paycheck Protection Program and opposed tax increases, new mandates, increased legal liability, and problematic employment law revisions that would have threatened Main Street’s economic recovery. NFIB commends Rep. Wester for earning the Guardian of Small Business Award.”
