Eichelberger Receives Guardian Of Small Business Award

The National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) has named Sen. John H. Eichelberger, Jr. (R-30) a “Guardian of Small Business” for his strong voting record on behalf of Pennsylvania’s small business owners. This award is given to legislators who voted favorably on key small-business issues during the current session. The votes tracked this session are among the highest priorities in NFIB’s small-business agenda.

During the 2009-2010 Legislative Session of the General Assembly, Eichelberger was one of only eight senators who had a 100 percent voting record on issues important to small businesses. Eichelberger has proven that he is a champion of Pennsylvania’s small businesses by receiving this recognition for his votes in both sessions he has served in the Senate.

Eichelberger said, “I am honored to receive this award from NFIB. I believe that it is important to protect the rights of small businesses, who play such a vital role in our economy. We have to continue to work hard on both sides of the aisle to make Pennsylvania a more business-friendly state, and we still have a long way to go.”

Founded in 1943, NFIB is the leading small-business association representing small and independent businesses across the United States. NFIB’s mission is to promote and protect the right of its members to own, operate and grow their businesses.
