STATEHOUSE - The Indiana Chamber of Commerce released their annual Legislative Vote Analysis earlier this week, ranking Rep. Kevin Mahan (R-Hartford City) as a pro-job and pro-economy legislator.

According to the Chamber, Rep. Mahan voted 95 percent pro-jobs and pro-economy last session, showing proof of the large number of job-friendly bills that were introduced and passed by the House Republicans.

"Our primary goal is to keep Indiana on the right track, so that we can continue to lead the way through this trying economy," said Rep. Mahan. "Saying that, we must continue to find additional ways to develop businesses and bring more jobs to our district and the State of Indiana. It is great to be recognized for my efforts to help Indiana reach those goals." 

The Chamber's Vote Analysis is produced after every legislative session. The legislator's scores are determined by bills and select amendments' that impact the state's economy.

Legislation included in the analysis that the Indiana Chamber highlights are: House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1004 to increase access to start-up capital for Indiana businesses in addition to lowering the corporate income tax rate; HEA 1006 to promote economic development locally and regionally; and HEA 1007 to allow enhanced abatement schedules and hiring incentives to encourage local job growth.
