The National Federation of Independent Business has named members of Congress as Guardians of Small Business for their outstanding voting records on behalf of small-business owners.
The Guardian award winners from Kansas are U.S. Sens. Pat Roberts and Sam Brownback, and U.S. Reps. Jerry Moran, 1st District, Nancy Boyda, 2nd District, and Todd Tiahrt, 4th District.
"The record shows that these individuals are a true champion of small business, having stood strong on the key small-business votes in the 110th Congress," said Todd Stottlemyer, president of the federation. "This award reflects our members' appreciation for supporting the NFIB pro-growth agenda for small business."
The NFIB will present Guardian awards to 58 senators and 194 representatives who voted favorably on key small-business issues at least 70 percent of the time during the 110th Congress.
