Valdosta - A South Georgia senator is recognized for his support of small businesses.

The National Federation of Independent Business named Senator Saxby Chambliss a Guardian of Small Business for his voting record on behalf of small business owners.

Friday, the Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of commerce held a reception to thank Chambliss.

He says great things are happening for area business owners, including the long anticipated tobacco buyout.  "This is going to allow a lot of tobacco growers who have been losing quota to now take some money and put it into something else that will move them in an agricultural area or maybe in another direction," said Chambliss.

Chambliss was also in Valdosta today to endorse Rusty Griffin for State Senate District 8.
