Burr Ridge, IL...The National Federation of Independent Business which represents thousands of small business owners across Illinois has named House Republican Leader Jim Durkin a Guardian of Small Business.

"House Republican Leader Jim Durkin has led by example with his perfect voting record on key small business issues," said Kim Clarke Maisch, NFIB/Illinois State Director. "NFIB clearly has a strong ally in Leader Durkin and we appreciate his leadership on the issues that matter most to Illinois' job creators." Leader Durkin says he is honored to be recognized for his efforts to support small business in Illinois.
