Joe Scarnati (R-25) is a Pennsylvania senator first and foremost, but now he can add “Guardian of Small Business” to his resume.
The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) recently bestowed the honor upon Scarnati for his solid and defined legislative support of the state’s local, small and independent businesses.
“I am pleased to receive this award and to be an advocate for job creation and economic growth across our Commonwealth,” Scarnati said. “Local manufacturers, retailers, service providers and agriculture businesses play a vital role in Pennsylvania’s economy and are an essential part of our region.”
Scarnati earned a perfect 100 percent from the NFIB largely in part for his voting record on key issues affecting job creation during the 2013-2014 legislative year.
“A strong business climate is crucial to creating jobs, growing communities and contributing to a better quality of life here in Pennsylvania,” Scarnati stated. “I will certainly continue to be a strong voice for advancing legislation that helps provide good, family sustaining jobs for our residents.”
Scarnati went on to say that NFIB is America’s leading small business association, a program that promotes and protects the rights of individuals to own, operate and expand their companies.
