HARRISBURG – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) was recently named a “Guardian of Small Business” by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).

The award reflects his backing of policies that support small businesses, which account for more than half of all private sector jobs in the Commonwealth. According to the state Labor Department, 98 percent of all Pennsylvania businesses employ fewer than 100 workers.

“Supporting small business means supporting jobs for people in our region and across the Commonwealth,” Causer said. “I have always believed that government needs to stay out of the way of our employers and let them grow and thrive, and I appreciate the contributions that small employers make to our workers and the local economy.”

Among the pro-small business issues addressed in the General Assembly this session are the eliminating the inheritance tax on small business assets, repealing a tax on business loans, closing a loophole in the Workers’ Compensation Act and ensuring state control over new federal greenhouse gas regulations.
