Rep. David Taylor receives Guardian of Small Business Award

Rep. David Taylor has been presented the Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).

NFIB has been considered the voice of small business for the last 70 years. Every two years, following the completion of two legislative sessions in Washington state, the group recognizes state lawmakers who voted with small business on issues that are vital to their survival. In its recent report card, NFIB graded state lawmakers on their votes for 19 bills. You can find the report card, including descriptions of the legislation, here.

“As a small business owner himself, Representative David Taylor understands the unique needs and struggles of entrepreneurs,” said NFIB/Washington State Director Patrick Connor. “His perfect, 100-percent, pro-small-business voting record shows his commitment is to Main Street, not Wall Street. He puts local job creators first, every single time, not just when it's convenient or popular.”

“I'm honored to be named a Guardian of Small Business by the National Federation of Independent Businesses,” said Taylor, R-Moxee. “As the single-largest employer in Washington state, we all know that small business is the backbone of our economy. My job as a legislator is to ensure our state maintains a positive business climate that allows employers to thrive, grow and hire more people. The Legislature has more work to do when it comes to the economy.”
