WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Frank A. LoBiondo recently received the "Guardian of Small Business" award by the National Federation of Independent Business in recognition of his voting record on business issues.

Juanita Duggan, NFIB president and CEO, presented LoBiondo with the award at a ceremony on Capitol Hill.

NFIB's award is given annually based on rankings on key business votes. Members of Congress who support NFIB's position on at least 70 percent of the votes receive the award. LoBiondo compiled a 93 percent score with NFIB for the 114th Congress.

NFIB is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization founded in 1943. For more information, see www.nfib.org.
