WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Tuesday, the National Federation of Independent Business named U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz (R-Fla.) a Guardian of Small Business in honor of his support for small businesses in the 116th Congress.
“During this difficult time, it’s more important than ever for Congress to back the small businesses which support our economy, create jobs and make our communities unique,” Waltz said. “I’m proud to receive this award, especially as a freshman member of Congress – and I promise to never quit fighting for small businesses in Florida.”
