The National Federation of Independent Business/Wisconsin recently presented State Sen. Neal Kedzie (R-Elkhorn) with the prestigious Guardian of Small Business Award in recognition of his work to defend free enterprise and grow Wisconsin's small business economy.

"Sen. Kedzie has been consistently on the right side of the issues that are most important to Wisconsin small businesses," state director Bill G. Smith said. "Our members know that they can count on Neal to fight for their interests every day, and we are proud to honor his efforts with this award."

Kedzie accomplished 100 percent on NFIB's Voting Record, which tracks the votes of every lawmaker on the issues most important to Wisconsin small businesses. The organization identified six bills during the past legislative session that had significant implications for its members. Kedzie voted in every case with the state's small business operators.

"Many of these were difficult votes, and we would like our members and the general public to know that there are some very courageous members of the Wisconsin Legislature. Sen. Kedzie is one of them, and we are grateful for his support," Smith said.

The Guardian of Small Business Award is NFIB's highest honor, reserved for lawmakers who demonstrate uncommon leadership and consistency in supporting the small business agenda.
