U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) received the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization. The NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award is the most prestigious legislative recognition given out by the NFIB.
“I feel honored to receive the Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Business,” Inhofe said. “The NFIB is a strong advocate for small businesses throughout Oklahoma and across the country. During COVID-19, Oklahoma small businesses have been hit hard and I am glad to have worked with the Trump administration to bring over $5.4 billion to them for relief. I look forward to continuing to advocate for their priorities in Congress.”
“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. Senate 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 Senator Inhofe for earning this distinction in the 116th Congress by taking pro-small business votes supporting financial assistance programs and opposing increased labor costs. Small business owners across the country need his support now more than ever during these unprecedented times, and we are grateful to Senator Inhofe for his leadership.”
