(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Two local Indiana lawmakers have received high-marks on the pro-jobs voting analysis by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
For the past 27 years, the chamber has released its Legislative Vote Analysis, an assessment of how job friendly each state lawmaker was with their votes during the past legislative session.
"Many positive policies were passed to aid working Hoosiers and their families this year. This report lets constituents know if their legislators helped to make this happen or if they tried to block the progress," said Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar.
The chamber says the 2011 session was “one of the biggest lists of pro-jobs, pro-growth accomplishments we've seen in quite some time."
In the report, lawmakers’ votes on 198 different bills were tracked including legislation affecting charter schools, worker unions, a public smoking ban, state budget, and more.
District 67 Rep. Randy Frye (R-Greensburg) and District 55 Rep. Tom Knollman (R-Liberty) were each tracked at 94 percent pro-jobs with their votes. House District 68 Rep. Jud McMillin (R-Brookville) received a 93 percent pro-job score.
Senator Johnny Nugent (R-Lawrenceburg) had a 76 percent pro-jobs voting record, lsightly lower than his two-year average of 78 percent.
