State Sen. Carrie Ruud, R-Breezy Point, received the Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).

NFIB is the state's largest small business group with 13,000 members statewide. NFIB recognizes legislators at both the state and federal level who have been supportive of small business on critical issues.

To receive the award, legislators had to demonstrate a supportive voting record for small business during the 2013-14 sessions of the Minnesota Legislature. Lawmakers in the Senate were scored on seven important votes for small business.

"Sen. Ruud is a real friend of small business and we are happy to announce that she has earned the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award," said Mike Hickey, NFIB state director.
