With less than a week to go until Pennsylvania’s May 15 primary election, candidates are working hard to get their message out to voters across the Commonwealth. ABC has always encouraged bipartisan support of candidates, regardless of party affiliation, who support free enterprise and the merit shop. Every legislative session, ABC tracks votes on issues and legislation that are crucial to our mission – bills that aim to reduce government regulation, encourage a more level playing field, and reduce the financial burden on businesses by cutting taxes.

As you head to the polls next week, here’s a helpful reminder of how your elected officials have voted on ABC issues in the past year:
