Rep. Dodge: “Hoosiers at Work Benefit All”

STATEHOUSE – The annual Legislative Vote Analysis completed by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce ranked Rep. Dodge  as having a perfect score pertaining  to voting for legislation which creates jobs in Indiana.
 
“In order to get this economy going again, we must get Hoosiers back to work.  Even though my time at the Statehouse will come to a close in November, job creation has been a very important part of my time at the legislature,” said Rep. Dodge.

The Chamber’s Vote Analysis has been produced for the past 28 years after every legislative session. The legislator’s scores are determined by his or her votes on particular bills and select amendments where the outcome of those bills and amendments on the state’s economy would have an impact on Indiana businesses.

"We want employers and citizens to take note of this report because it makes it very clear which legislators were supportive of bettering Indiana's economic climate and which were not," stated Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar.
 
Over the past eight years, House Republicans have built the best toolbox in the Midwest and arguably the nation when it comes to creating a climate for job growth. Indiana was also ranked as the number one state in biosciences, in addition to having 58 companies indicate to the IEDC that Indiana’s enactment of Right to Work will be a positive factor in their decision-making process of where to locate their current projects.
 
“Passing pro-jobs legislation allows Hoosiers the opportunity to create, design, and innovate in a variety of fields,” said Rep. Dodge.  “The key is giving Hoosiers the chance and that is what I have been working to do.”
