WASHINGTON - The National Federation of Independent Business, the nation’s leading advocate for small businesses, awarded U.S. Congressman David G. Valadao (CA-21) with its biennial Guardian of Small Business Award for his outstanding support of America’s small business owners in the 114th Congress.

“Many elected officials claim that they are champions of small business, but our Guardian Award shows our members and other small business owners who is really fighting for them,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan. “Based on his voting record, Representative Valadao is one of the most reliable advocates for small business in Washington.”

The Guardian of Small Business is NFIB’s most prestigious award. It is reserved for lawmakers who vote consistently with NFIB on the key issues identified by small business owners. NFIB tracks the votes of every member of Congress. House members and Senators who vote with NFIB members at least 70 percent of the time are eligible for the Guardian Award.

"Small businesses are a vital part of the Central Valley’s community and our thriving economy," stated Congressman Valadao. He continued, "As the owner of a family dairy farm, I understand the obstacles small businesses face each and every day and am honored to receive this award."

Congressman Valadao received a 100 voting record during the 114th Congress.

Congressman David G. Valadao represents the 21st Congressional District, which includes Kings County and portions of Fresno, Tulare, and Kern Counties.
