Evans Honored with Guardian of Small Business AwardHARRISBURG – To acknowledge his support for local businesses, the Pennsylvania chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) has honored Rep. John Evans (R-Erie/Crawford) with its Guardian of Small Business award.
“I am very honored to receive NFIB’s Guardian of Small Business award,” Evans said. “Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and especially in northwestern Pennsylvania. My voting record clearly illustrates the support I have for the small business community and their role in our economy.”
The award is given to legislators for their outstanding voting record on behalf of Pennsylvania’s small business owners during the current legislative session. Specifically, the awards recognize legislators for voting favorably on small business legislation at least 75 percent of the time during the current session.
The voting record includes only key votes on small business issues, not all of the votes cast during the session. The votes tracked this session are among the highest priorities in NFIB’s small-business agenda — regulatory relief, tax and fiscal policy, and unemployment and workers compensation reforms.
