STATEHOUSE (June 25, 2019) – State Rep. Bob Cherry (R-Greenfield) was recently identified as a pro-economy, pro-jobs legislator in the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s annual Legislative Vote Analysis.

Cherry earned a perfect score based on his votes cast in agreement with the Indiana Chamber’s position on 38 bills during the 2019 legislative session. Legislation considered in the scoring included increased investment in rural broadband, significant water infrastructure funding, school accountability improvements and statewide preschool expansion.

“More and more employers are choosing Indiana as their home,” Cherry said. “It’s important to seek out and find new ways to help local and state economies continue to thrive by attracting businesses and creating jobs around Indiana.”

According to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, the state’s labor force has experienced record growth, with more than 37,000 Hoosiers entering the workforce since April 2018.

Cherry serves as vice chair of the House Ways and Means Committee and helped to pass an honestly balanced biennial budget, which maintains a AAA credit rating and aids Indiana’s economic growth.

Cherry received a four-year aggregate score of 98% from the chamber.

environment which provides economic opportunity and prosperity.”
