Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (August 16, 2013) — The National Coalition for Capital recently honored State Sen. Randy Head (R-Logansport) with the Champion of Small Business award for his leadership in promoting capital for small businesses in economically distressed communities.

“This award recognizes Sen. Head’s important work to preserve and create jobs through access to capital policy that helps Indiana small businesses grow and develop,” said Michael Votta, President of the National Coalition for Capital.  “Sen. Head has demonstrated he is a champion of small business, and his efforts will have an enduring positive impact on Indiana.”

During the 2013 legislative session, Head pioneered efforts to create the Indiana New Markets Job Act, a bill that would have encouraged private funding to small businesses in underserved areas.

“Small businesses provide the bulk of job creation and are a pivotal source of economic innovation,” Head said. “It is vital that lawmakers and local officials make small business a priority and advance policies helping them to succeed. Though the Indiana New Markets Job Act didn’t pass this year, I remain committed to supporting legislation that fuels job growth and entrepreneurship.”

Head and 24 fellow legislators from across the nation were recognized for their leadership at the annual National Coalition for Capital awards ceremony on Aug. 12 in Atlanta, Ga.
