Cheyenne, OK – Last week, Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) was named a Guardian of Small Business by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). Awarded every Congress, NFIB’s Guardian of Small Business Award is reserved for lawmakers who vote consistently with small business on the key issues identified by small business owners.

“I’m honored to receive the Guardian of Small Business Award from NFIB. Small, family-owned businesses are the engines to many local economies throughout Oklahoma, and in the wake of COVID-19, it’s critically important that we support our local business owners to keep our communities thriving,” said Congressman Lucas. “I’m proud to represent the thousands of small businesses in Oklahoma’s Third District, and I’ll always fight for their success.”

“The NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award is awarded to lawmakers who small businesses can truly count on,” said Kevin Kuhlman, NFIB Vice President of Federal Government Relations. “These Members of the U.S. House of Representatives are dedicated supporters of the key issues that our members are concerned about and have proven themselves to be real champions for small business. Our policy positions are driven by our members, and we report NFIB Key Votes back to our membership. We are proud to recognize the elected officials from the 116th Congress who earned this distinction by taking pro-small business votes supporting financial assistance programs and tax relief and opposing new regulations and increased labor costs. Small business owners across the country need their support now more than ever during these unprecedented times, and we are grateful to these lawmakers for their leadership.”
