Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) was awarded the “Guardian of Small Business” Award by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) for her work in Congress to support small businesses and promote entrepreneurship.

“I grew up in a small business family and know how critical supporting small businesses is for our North Country economy and for creating jobs in our district,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Individuals and families across our district take significant financial risks in order to pursue their dreams of owning a small business, and I am proud to advance policies in Congress to help these entrepreneurs succeed.
