Washington, D.C. – Congressman MacArthur today received the Guardian Award from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) for maintaining a strong small business voting record in the 114th Congress.

“As a former small-business owner, I know it takes great effort and resolve to establish and grow a successful company,” said Congressman MacArthur. “The heavy hand of the federal government can discourage creative and hard-working Americans from venturing out to take risks and build a business. I am proud to fight for South Jersey's small businesses and all those who work at them, to eliminate the unnecessary regulations and burdens that make it harder to succeed, and to do all I can to make our local economy work again.”

“Many elected officials claim that they are champions of small business, but our Guardian Award shows our members and other small business owners who is really fighting for them,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan.  “Based on his voting record, Rep. MacArthur is one of the most reliable advocates for small business in Washington.” 

The Guardian Award is the highest award available from the NFIB and is reserved for Members of Congress who demonstrate a consistent commitment to economic growth and pro-small business policy initiatives. Congressman MacArthur has served as an outspoken advocate for small businesses and entrepreneurs across the country, supporting key legislation such as the REINS Act  (H.R. 427) and SCRUB Act (H.R. 1155), to protect businesses from overregulation and introduce accountability into Washington’s regulatory system.
