Rep. Frelinghuysen named Guardian of Small Business by the National Federation of Independent Business

Washington, D.C.  In a ceremony at the United States Capitol, Congressman Rodney P. Frelinghuysen (NJ-11) was presented with the “Guardian of Small Business Award” by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).

The award was presented by NFIB’s CEO, Dan Danner, in recognition of Congressman Frelinghuysen’s “strong small business voting record in the 113th Congress.”

In accepting the award, Frelinghuysen said:

"Small business is the engine of our nation’s economic growth. Small business creates almost two out of every three net new private sector jobs, providing greater opportunity and a better future for millions of Americans.

Unfortunately, small business is often handcuffed by excessive federal regulation and taxes. I have fought in Congress to unburden our small business owners and entrepreneurs from these burdens that make it difficult for their businesses to reach their full potential.

I appreciate the NFIB’s recognition of my efforts and I look forward to continuing to fight on behalf of America’s small business community."
