Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) has been named a 2014 Hero of Main Street by theNational Retail Federation for advocating federal policies that support the growth of local retailers.
"Small businesses are the lifeblood of Indiana's economy, and we need to encourage them through the right federal policies," said Coats. "Creating a climate where Main Street can grow and expand will benefit all Hoosiers."
The award is based on voting record, bill sponsorship and efforts to reform the Affordable Care Act and U.S. Tax Code.
