9.13.2012 Costa Honored as ‘Guardian of Small Business’

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jim Costa was awarded the Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB). This award is presented every Congress to the Members of the House and Senate with the strongest record of supporting economic growth and small businesses.

“One of the best ways to create and support Valley jobs is to help our small businesses thrive,” said Costa. “That is why I have supported payroll tax cuts, tax incentives, and providing access to loans and investment dollars among other policies to help small businesses expand and grow their operations. There is far more that must be done to support economic growth in our Valley, but it’s clear that we all win when small businesses thrive.”

Every two years, NFIB honors Representatives and Senators who have consistently supported pro-growth and free enterprise policies. Costa has received this award 3 times during his time in the House of Representatives.
