Guardian of Small Business

nfibOn September 23 2010, the National Federation of Independent Business gave Jenifer their “Guardian of Small Business” Award.

Representative Jenifer Loon (R-42B) was presented an award this week by the National Federation of Independent Business recognizing her as a champion for small business in Minnesota.

At a St. Paul ceremony, Mike Hickey, State Director of NFIB/MN stated, “Representative Loon is a strong supporter of small business at the Capitol and we really appreciate that. She made many votes in support of small business including votes against large tax increases in our already highly taxed state, and she authored the amendment to expand the Small Employer Flexible Benefit Plan law,” he continued. “Rep. Loon is a real friend and we are happy to announce that she has earned the Guardian of Small Business Award.”

Prior to her election to public office, Loon spent 16 years in the public and private sector working on policies to enhance entrepreneurship and the growth of small business. “Eden Prairie is home to thousands of small and independent business owners. Protecting job creators from heavy tax burdens and overreaching regulations is a top priority as we seek ways to get Minnesotans back to work and restore vitality to the private sector economy,” said Loon. “It is truly an honor to be recognized for standing with these hard working small business men and women through my work in the Legislature.”
