NFIB recognizes representative as ‘Guardian of Small Business’
State Rep. Ann Bollin has been honored by the National Federation of Independent Business for her track record of support for small businesses.
The Guardian of Small Business Award recognizes that Bollin has scored 100 percent on Michigan’s NFIB Voting Record for the 2021-22 legislative session, along with other criteria. Bollin is one of just 10 state representatives to meet the strict criteria for the award.
“Small businesses really are the backbone of our community,” said Bollin, of Brighton Township. “A healthy economy and a regulatory environment that allows small businesses to succeed helps our entire community thrive.”
The votes considered by the NFIB include tax and regulatory relief, personal property tax exemptions for small business, reining in state government overreach, and supporting recovery efforts for businesses most affected by government-ordered shutdowns during the pandemic.
