Brandenburg awarded for championing small business

LANSING, Mich.—The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) has announced that Sen. Jack Brandenburg has received their “Guardian of Small Business” award for his perfect voting records on small-business issues.

“I’m honored that such an esteemed organization such as NFIB has recognized my record of voting in favor of the backbone of Michigan’s economy – small businesses,” said Brandenburg, R-Harrison Township. “I take many things into consideration when casting my vote for the people of the 11th District, but the well-being of small business owners is one of the most paramount.”

Session Small Business Voting Record grades lawmakers on a scale of 0 to 100 percent, with 100 percent being a perfect small-business score. A score below 70 percent is considered failing. The voting record is based on a series of votes on issues deemed important to small businesses.

“Although the voting record does not reflect all elements considered by a lawmaker when voting, it is an important guide to evaluating their attitude toward small business,” said NFIB State Director Charles Owens.
