The state’s largest small business association, the National Federation of Independent Business, today announced that State Representative Greg Davids of Preston was awarded the prestigious Guardian of Small Business award.

The National Federation of Independent Business has more than 12,000 members in Minnesota, making it the largest business group in terms of entities. To win a Guardian of Small Business Award, legislators had to demonstrate a pro-small business voting record during the 87th session of the Minnesota legislature. Lawmakers were scored based on 10 votes taken in the state House of Representatives and Senate.

“He made many votes in support of small business during the recent 2011-2012 legislative session, including voting for critical tax reductions and reforms to make Minnesota more competitive and also supported major tort reforms to reduce lawsuit abuse. He also supported a critical measure that required the Legislature to review and approve new rules and regulations that are burdensome and expensive for small businesses to comply with before they go into effect. State Representative Davids is a real friend of small business, and we are happy to announce that he has earned the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award,” said Mike Hickey, NFIB State Director.
