HARRISBURG – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) announced today that Senator Jake Corman (R-34th District) has been named “Guardian of Small Business” for his legislative support of small local and independent businesses.
“Supporting small business in Pennsylvania is part of the job and not something I anticipated being recognized for in this way,” said Corman. “But, I am grateful for the recognition and look forward to continued work with the small business community.”
The NFIB is a national nonprofit, nonpartisan small business association, with offices in all 50 states. The Guardian of Small Business Awards are given to Senators and Representatives who voted favorably on key small-business issues in the legislature.
“A strong small business climate is one of the main components of a strong economy,” added Corman. “Small businesses are great economic engines, adding much to communities, including jobs, services and standard of living. It has been a pleasure to work with the small business community in my district.”
