The annual Legislative Vote Analysis completed by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce ranked State Rep. Woody Burton as having a 97 percent when it comes to legislation creating jobs in Indiana.
“I continue to work hard to pass legislation to create jobs in Indiana,” said Rep. Burton. “I am grateful for the Chamber’s recognition of my efforts.”
“We want employers and citizens to take note of this report because it makes it very clear which legislators were supportive of bettering Indiana’s economic climate and which were not,” said Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar.
The Chamber’s Vote Analysis has been produced for the past 28 years after every legislative session. The legislator’s scores are determined by his or her votes on particular bills and select amendments where the outcome of those bills and amendments on the state’s economy would have an impact on Indiana businesses.
Over the past eight years, House Republicans have built the best toolbox in the Midwest and arguably the nation when it comes to creating a climate for job growth. Indiana was also ranked as the number one state in biosciences, in addition to having 58 companies indicate to the IEDC that Indiana’s enactment of Right to Work will be a positive factor in their decision-making process of where to locate their current projects.
“I will continue to work with my fellow legislators to build a work environment that attracts employers to build and stay in Indiana – which will bring more jobs to our community,” said Rep. Burton.
