STATEHOUSE-The Indiana Chamber of Commerce released their annual Legislative Vote Analysis earlier this week, ranking Rep. Greg Steuerwald (R-Avon) as a pro-jobs legislator.

Rep. Steuerwald received a score of 95 percent based on his voting record on legislation that would improve Indiana's economy and workforce, supporting the House Republican plans to strengthen Indiana.

"The chamber is a very important resource in the development of businesses and improving the economy in Indiana," said Rep. Steuerwald. "I am pleased that they are supportive of our efforts we took in order to help the Hoosier economy thrive."

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