"As a small business owner for more than 30 years, I know firsthand of the many challenges that small businesses across the country face every day," said Carter. "In recent years, these hardworking men and women have faced increased hurdles due to the Obama Administration's costly and burdensome regulatory framework. Small businesses are the backbone of our nation and it is one of my top priorities in Congress to get the government and this administration out of their way. I am honored to receive this award today and I will continue to work to change the trajectory for the better for America's job creators."

The Guardian of Small Business is NFIB’s most prestigious award.  It is reserved for lawmakers who support key issues identified by small business owners.     
 
“Many elected officials claim that they are champions of small business, but our Guardian Award shows our members and other small business owners who is really fighting for them,”said NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan.  “Based on his voting record, Representative Carter is one of the most reliable advocates for small business in Washington.” 
 
Carter received a 100 voting record during the 114th Congress.
