|Rep. George Dunbar (R-Westmoreland) accepted his 2012 Guardian of Small Business Award from Pennsylvania National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) State Director Kevin Shivers.

HARRISBURG – Rep. George Dunbar (R-Westmoreland) is among a select group of only a dozen out of 253 state lawmakers to be recognized as a Guardian of Small Business for his 100 percent small business voting record during the 2011-12 legislative session by the Pennsylvania chapter of the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB).
“I am honored to be recognized with such a distinguished award for the votes I have cast to retain and bring new jobs to western Pennsylvania,” said Dunbar. “As a certified public accountant, I understand the challenges facing our small business community and I consider their concerns every time I vote on issues directly impacting Pennsylvania’s economy. Especially during these very difficult economic times, the policies we enact as state lawmakers must make small businesses more comfortable to expand and create family-sustaining jobs again.”
“Guardians of Small Business” designations are awarded to legislators who consistently vote favorably on key small business issues at least 75 percent of the time. According to the NFIB, Dunbar supported small businesses and job creation 100 percent of the time during the 2011-12 legislative session on such high priority issues as legal reform and regulatory relief; tax and fiscal policy; and unemployment and workers compensation reforms.
