STATEHOUSE (May 18, 2016) — State Rep. John Price (R-Bargersville) earned 98 percent on the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s annual Legislative Vote Analysis for his support of pro-economy, pro-jobs legislation.

Price’s score is based on his performance during the 2016 session of the Indiana General Assembly and his votes cast in agreement with the Indiana Chamber’s position on certain bills, including measures providing road funding, workforce education and scholarships to top-performing Hoosier students who enter the teaching field.                             

“The Legislative Vote Analysis is an important source of information for thousands of Indiana employers and citizens,” states Indiana Chamber President and CEO Kevin Brinegar. “The purpose is to keep Hoosiers informed about what’s going on at the Indiana Statehouse and how their legislators are voting on issues vital to the state’s economic future and their own. This report makes it clear which legislators support pro-economy, pro-jobs bills and which legislators do not.” 

Indiana is one of the most business-friendly states in the country, recently ranking first in the Midwest and among the top five in the nation for best business climate, according to Chief Executive’s annual “Best & Worst States for Business” ranking.

“I will continue to support policies that invest in education and job training,” Price said. “This fosters an environment where businesses can succeed, which leads to more job opportunities for Hoosiers.”

Price received a four-year aggregate score of 96 percent.
