State Rep. Chris Nybo Earns Award for Leadership on Jobs, Growth
In recognition of his support of the small business community and continued leadership to advance pro-growth economic policies, State Rep. Chris Nybo (R-41st, Elmhurst) has been honored with the Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Business, Illinois.
Every two years, the NFIB scores legislators based on key small business votes they take in the Illinois General Assembly. The Guardian Award is provided to those who score 80 percent or better.
“I am honored to accept this award and thank the small business community throughout the state for their hard work and perseverance during these difficult economic times,” Rep. Nybo said. “It is imperative to continue to fight to improve the business climate in Illinois. NFIB is an outstanding partner who shares our commitment in supporting job creators and entrepreneurs.”
The NFIB has more than 11,000 small business members in Illinois who count on lawmakers, the governor and other elected officials to foster a competitive business environment through limited government, fewer regulations and market-driven public policies. The Small Business Administration estimates small businesses create about 65 percent of the nation’s net new jobs.
