Toepel Honored by NFIB with Guardian of Small Business Award
9/16/2014
HARRISBURG
– The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) has recognized Rep. Marcy Toepel (R- Montgomery) as a 2013-14 Guardian of Small Business.

Guardian of Small Business Awards are given to senators and representatives who voted favorably on key small-business issues. The votes tracked this session are among the highest priorities in the NFIB’s small-business agenda.

“Because small businesses are so vital to our economy, I appreciate the opportunity to advocate for small-business owners’ interests,” said Toepel. “The Commonwealth is highly dependent on our small businesses for job creation, and that is why I will continue to fight for them. I am honored to have received this award.”

Toepel has supported small businesses on key issues including the elimination of the death tax on small business assets, prohibition of “triple-dipping” by retired government workers who return to work and then collect unemployment benefits after voluntarily quitting temporary employment, as well as closure of a loophole in the Workers’ Compensation Act that is used by some physicians to overcharge by as much as 700 percent for prescriptions dispensed out of their offices.
