WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) issued the following statement after being presented with the Small Business Council of America’s Congressional Award. The Small Business Council of America presents Congressional Awards to a bipartisan selection of Senators and Representatives in recognition of their efforts, expertise and advocacy on small business issues.
“Like many Americans, my family’s small business was central to achieving our American dream,” Rep. Ted Lieu said. “I helped my parents with their gift shop business, which allowed my immigrant family build a life here. Congress needs to continue to help American small businesses survive this challenging period because they are the backbone of our economy. I am honored that the Small Business Council of America would present me with their Congressional award and I appreciate their commitment to ensuring small businesses have a voice in Washington.”
