Washington, DC (September 26, 2012) - The National Federation of Independent Businesses has presented Congressman Steve Pearce with their Guardian of Small Business award.

“I am honored to be recognized by the NFIB,” said Pearce.  “Small businesses are New Mexico’s job creators, and one of my top priorities in Congress is to protect our small business owners from burdensome taxes and unnecessary regulations.”

Dan Danner, president and CEO of the NFIB, thanked Pearce for his work, saying, “In the 112th Congress, Representative Steve Pearce proved that he is a champion of small Business.”

A former business owner himself, Rep. Pearce recognizes that small businesses are the backbone of the American economy.  In his nearly eight years in Congress, he has worked tirelessly for small businesses, fighting against unnecessary taxes and overregulation that make job creation impossible.
