Diaz-Balart Recognized as “Hero of Main Street” for His Support of Small Business
MIAMI – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) issued the following statement after the National Retail Federation named him a 2018 “Hero of Main Street” for his support of small business.
“Mom-and-pop businesses across Florida’s 25th district are the heart and soul of our local economy. In the last 10 months, we have seen the rolling benefits of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on both small businesses and working-class families. In that same time, Congress has also worked to reduce burdensome regulations that stifle innovation and hurt entrepreneurs’ bottom lines. Receiving this “Hero of Main Street” award is humbling, because our local small business owners contribute so much to our community. I thank the National Retail Federation for this recognition, and I will continue to champion legislation that incentivizes job creation and bolsters the economy.”
