NFIB Names State Lawmakers Who Supported Small Business on Every Recent Key Vote

Date: September 06, 2018

These policymakers have a 100-percent voting record with NFIB

HARRISBURG (Sept. 3, 2018) —NFIB in Pennsylvania, the state’s leading small-business association, announced the names of state Senators and Representatives who achieved a 100-percent voting record on key small business issues in the recent General Assembly session. Those 40 lawmakers, listed below, will be presented with NFIB’s coveted Guardian of Small Business Award.

The Guardian of Small Business Award is the most prestigious honor that NFIB bestows on legislators in recognition of their efforts to support small business issues. A 100-percent score indicates a state lawmaker had supported small businesses in Pennsylvania each time an important vote was taken during the 2017-2018 legislative session when it impacted small and independently owned companies.

“These state Senators and House members have proven themselves a steadfast ally of small business,” said NFIB’s Legislative Director in Pennsylvania, Rebecca Oyler. “It’s easy to forget, but stopping bad legislation is just as important as passing good legislation.”

“These lawmakers know the importance of Pennsylvania’s small, family-owned businesses and understand the necessity of reducing the government’s role in their lives and the importance that business plays in creating jobs,” added Oyler.

NFIB’s Pennsylvania Voting Record for all state House and Senate members will soon be published at
