Washington, D.C.- The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation's leading small business advocacy organization, presented its most prestigious legislative recognition, the Guardian of Small Business Award, to Congressman Doug Lamborn for his work in the 116th Congress. NFIB's Guardian of Small Business Award is awarded to lawmakers who vote consistently with small businesses on the key issues identified by small business owners. 

"Small, family-owned businesses are the heart of Colorado's Fifth Congressional District,"  said Congressman Doug Lamborn. "I am honored to receive the Guardian of Small Business Award from the NFIB. For many people, owning their own business is part of the American Dream. In the wake of COVID-19, it is more important than ever to support our local business owners who keep our communities thriving. I will continue working alongside the great folks at NFIB to do just that."

"The NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award is awarded to lawmakers who small businesses can truly count on," said Kevin Kuhlman, NFIB Vice President of Federal Government Relations. "These Members of the U.S. House of Representatives are dedicated supporters of the key issues that our members are concerned about and have proven themselves to be real champions for small business. Our policy positions are driven by our members, and we report NFIB Key Votes back to our membership. We are proud to recognize Congressman Lamborn for earning this distinction in the 116th Congress by taking pro-small business votes supporting financial assistance programs and tax relief and opposing new regulations and increased labor costs. Small business owners across the country need their support now more than ever during these unprecedented times, and we are grateful to Congressman Lamborn for his leadership."

For more than 75 years, NFIB has been the voice of America's small and independent business owners. Since its founding in 1943, NFIB has been exclusively dedicated to and advocated for small and independent businesses.
