State legislators have received their grades from the Indiana Chamber on their performance during the 2016 General Assembly. The numbers, released in the annual Legislative Vote Analysis, are based on voting records on pro-jobs, pro-economy legislation. The 2016 scores were wide-ranging, from 36% to 100%.
“The Legislative Vote Analysis is an important source of information for thousands of Indiana employers and citizens,” states Indiana Chamber President and CEO Kevin Brinegar. “The purpose is to keep Hoosiers informed about what’s going on at the Indiana Statehouse and how their legislators are voting on issues vital to the state’s economic future and their own. This report makes it clear which legislators support pro-economy, pro-jobs bills and which legislators do not.”
In addition to receiving their score, 13 legislators earned a star designation for overall leadership or their significant efforts on issues deemed of critical importance. Read full story.
