STATEHOUSE (July 2, 2019) – State Rep. Jim Pressel (R-Rolling Prairie) was recently ranked as a pro-economy, pro-jobs legislator in the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s annual Legislative Vote Analysis.

Pressel earned a score of 90% 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.

“It takes a great deal of work and determination to run a successful business,” Pressel said. “As a small-business owner, I understand the needs of Hoosier job creators, and I will continue to support policies that help local employers and boost Indiana’s economy.” 

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.

Pressel, a member of the House Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications Committee, heard and discussed many of the measures supported by the chamber.

Pressel received a four-year aggregate score of 92%.
