The state’s major small business organization, the National Federation of Independent Business, or NFIB, today presented Representative Jordan Rasmusson (Fergus Falls) with the prestigious Guardian of Small Business Award.

“Now more than ever, Main Street needs strong advocates in the Minnesota Legislature, and they have one in Representative Jordan Rasmusson,” said John Reynolds, NFIB Minnesota State Director. “Thanks to Jordan’s leadership, small businesses were protected from painful tax hikes, more red tape, and burdensome mandates.” 

Rasmusson earned the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award with a 100 percent score on the NFIB Minnesota Voting Record for 2021-22.

The Guardian of Small Business Award is reserved for legislators who vote consistently with small business on the key issues identified by small business owners. Minnesota lawmakers who voted with small business on key issues 80 percent or more of the time during the 2021-22 legislative sessions earned the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award.
