Ramsey receives Guardian of Small Business Award

State Representative Matt Ramsey, R-Peachtree City, recently received the Guardian of Small Business award from the National Federation of Independent Business.
“Matt Ramsey earned this award for his steadfast support for small business and his strong leadership on issues important to entrepreneurs in Georgia,” said Kyle Jackson, NFIB/Georgia State Director.

The Guardian of Small Business award is the greatest honor that NFIB bestows on legislators in recognition of their efforts to support small business issues. NFIB voted to present the award to Rep. Ramsey because of his pro-business voting record and work on House Bill 47.

HB 47 allows insurance companies licensed in Georgia to sell accident and health insurance policies that are approved for sale in other states. The bill was approved by the General Assembly during the 2011 legislative session, signed into law by Governor Deal, and went into effect on July 1, 2011.

Representative Matt Ramsey represents the citizens of District 72, which includes portions of Fayette County. He was elected into the House of Representatives in 2007, and was elected by the House Majority Caucus to serve as their Caucus Vice-Chairman in 2010.

Ramsey also serves on the Appropriations, Congressional and Legislative Reapportionment, Judiciary Non-Civil, and Regulated Industries committees.
