Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) has been named a “Guardian of Small Business” by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s largest small business organization. Latta received the award based on his 100% pro-small business voting record. Legislation that Latta has supported that would help small businesses include the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a Balanced Budget Amendment, and H.R. 6311, a bill to lower health insurance costs and increase health insurance options for small businesses.
According to a survey conducted by NFIB, small business optimism is at an all-time high.
“I fully support Ohio’s small businesses and their employees,” said Latta. “Because of new policies that decrease regulations, eliminate government red tape, and reduce taxes on small businesses, we’re seeing sky-high optimism and job creation. Small businesses create two out of every three new jobs and are the engines of our economy. I’m honored to be named a “Guardian of Small Business” in recognition of my efforts to help the job creators on Main Street.”
