Liu received a "Summa Cum Laude" rating, the highest ranking given state legislators, for her continued commitment to California's small businesses in 2009.
"Small businesses play a critical role in the state's economy and provide jobs for hard-working Californians," said Liu, D-La Cañada Flintridge. "California cannot have a strong economy without a strong and innovative small business sector. I am honored by the Small Business Association's recognition and congratulate them on their work on behalf of small businesses throughout the state," she said.
CSBA is a grassroots, volunteer-driven, nonprofit small business advocacy organization that provides small business with a meaningful voice in state and federal government.
Liu represents nearly 850,000 people in the 21st Senate District, which includes Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, La Cañada Flintridge, San Gabriel, Temple City, and several City of Los Angeles communities.
