Representative Steve Gottwalt Earns Guardian of Small Business Award
St Paul, MN, September 21st, 2010- The state’s largest business group in terms of entities, the National Federation of Independent Business is pleased to announce that Representative Steve Gottwalt of St. Cloud has earned the Guardian of Small Business Award for the 2009-10 session. “Representative Gottwalt is a strong supporter of small business at the Capitol and we really appreciate that” said Mike Hickey, State Director of NFIB/MN.
Rep. Gottwalt understands the vital role small businesses play in our state’s economy and realizes how many jobs are created by small business each year. He made many votes in support of small business including voting against a large tax increase several times in our already high tax state, supported legislation to expand the Small Employer Flexible Benefit Plan Law to more small businesses and importantly individuals, and opposed a measure to raise the cost of Health Savings Account plans to mention a few. Representative Gottwalt made many other votes in support of small business and he is a real friend. We are happy to announce that he has earned the Guardian of Small Business Award
Way to go, Steve~!
