Representative John Shaw wins awards for support of business

The Tennessee office of National Federation of Independent Business, the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, will today present its coveted Guardian of Small Business award to state Rep. Johnny Shaw (District 80).

“Representative Shaw had an excellent NFIB Voting Record in 2021-22 and was exceptionally supportive on key NFIB issues during the pandemic,” NFIB State Director Jim Brown said.

The NFIB Tennessee Leadership Council, an advisory board comprised of NFIB members, voted to present the award to the Representative Shaw for his outstanding leadership on small business issues. NFIB member Jerry Barrix with Wade Electric Co, and other area leaders joined Brown in making the presentation in Jackson this afternoon.

His leadership on the Finance, Ways & Means and Agriculture & Natural Resources subcommittees and on the full committees has been very helpful in creating a stable, predictable business environment in Tennessee, according to NFIB
