(HARRISBURG) Sept. 22,
2016 –
Members of Pennsylvania’s leading small
business advocacy group, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB),
today announced its state legislative endorsements in the upcoming general
election.  One hundred thirty-one candidates in the race for state
Senate and House seats have been endorsed.

“We have
scrutinized all the voting records of the incumbents on issues of importance to
small business and surveyed the challengers
on those same topics. NFIB also sought input from a team of small business
owners who made the final endorsement decisions,” said Kevin Shivers, executive state director of NFIB/PA. “We are
sure that these endorsed candidates if
elected, will support budding entrepreneurs and existing small businesses by
making sure public policies encourage their success and growth. In turn, that
will help improve the Pennsylvania economy and employment in the Commonwealth.”

NFIB has over 14,000 small business members in Pennsylvania
representing a cross-section of the state’s economy. The endorsements come from
Pennsylvania’s NFIB’s SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, the
association’s political action committee, and are
based on positions regarding key small-business issues including health
care, taxes, and labor and regulatory issues.

Small-business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and
are known for actively recruiting friends, family members and acquaintances to go to the polls. NFIB will encourage
its members to help turn out the small-business vote for the candidates in the
general election in November.
