STATEHOUSE (June 24, 2019) – State Rep. Sharon Negele (R-Attica) was recently identified as a pro-economy, pro-jobs legislator in the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s annual Legislative Vote Analysis.
Negele earned a score of 100% based on her 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.
“As a small-business owner, I understand the dedication it takes to grow and maintain a successful business,” Negele said. “Local communities and the state rely on hardworking Hoosiers for jobs and economic growth, and I will continue to support policies that aid these efforts.”
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.
Negele was one of only six lawmakers to earn a perfect score of 100% for the 2019 session, and received a four-year aggregate score of 97% from the chamber.
The Indiana Chamber partners with 25,000 members and investors – representing
over 4 million Hoosiers – to achieve the mission of “cultivating a world-class
environment which provides economic opportunity and prosperity.”
State Rep. Sharon Negele (R-Attica) represents House District 13,
which includes all of Benton County, and portions of Fountain, Jasper,
Montgomery, Newton, Tippecanoe, Warren and White counties.
