WASHINGTON – The National Federation of Independent Business has given Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) the Guardian of Small Business Award, its most prestigious legislative title. The Small Business Investor Alliance has also named Kennedy a Champion of Small Business Investing. These awards recognize lawmakers who consistently advocate for small businesses through their legislative voting records.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and I’m thankful for the jobs they create and sustain. The National Federation of Independent Business and the Small Business Investor Alliance work hard for small and independent businesses, and I’m honored to receive these awards.”
Kennedy is a member of the Small Business Committee and has worked to protect small businesses from tax increases and unwarranted IRS audits.
During the 117th Congress, Kennedy also voted in support of the Paycheck Protection Program Extension Act of 2021.
