Hall County state legislators Rep. Lee Hawkins of District 29 and Sen. Butch Miller of District 49 have been recognized as members of the National Federation of Independent Business, Georgia’s leading small-business association, and for their work in the Capitol on behalf of state businesses.

“Small business is the engine that drives Georgia’s economy, and as small-business owners, Rep. Hawkins and Sen. Miller understand the issues impacting business owners,” said Nathan Humphrey, state director of NFIB. “It’s one thing for small-business owners to speak up about the issues affecting them, their employees, and their families, but Rep. Hawkins and Sen. Miller are trying to change things from the inside.”

Both Hawkins and Miller have both earned a 100 percent NFIB voting record by opposing regulations and supporting legislation that helps small-business owners expand and create jobs.
