Sep 13, 2012 -
Today, Congressman Harold “Hal” Rogers (KY-05) was honored by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) as a Guardian of Small Business for his outstanding voting record on behalf of America’s small-business owners in the 112th Congress.
“Over my years of public service, I have always stood with Kentucky small businesses and worked to encourage and support local innovators to take risks and follow their dreams so that we can create tomorrow’s jobs and build up our nation,” said Rogers. “It is an honor to receive this award and stand with NFIB, one of our nation’s leading small business associations, in helping protect and grow American small businesses.”
“The record shows that Rep. Rogers is a true champion of small business, having stood strong on the key small-business votes in the 112th Congress,” said NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner. “This award reflects our members’ appreciation for supporting the NFIB Pro-growth agenda for small business.”
NFIB will present Guardian awards to 245 Representatives who voted favorable on key small business issues at least 70 percent of the time during the 112th Congress.
Rogers has served Kentucky’s 5th Congressional District since 1981. With a focus on economic development, job creation, fighting illegal drugs and preserving Appalachia’s natural treasures, he has a reputation for listening to his constituents and fighting for the region he represents.
