Bacon earns top score from Indiana Chamber

STATEHOUSE (May 16, 2016) – State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) earned a perfect score on the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s annual Legislative Vote Analysis for his support of pro-economy, pro-jobs legislation.  

Bacon’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.

“Being ranked top five in the nation for business climate signals to entrepreneurs that Indiana is a great place to set up shop, which means more jobs for hardworking Hoosiers and an even stronger economy,” Bacon said. “I will continue to support sound policies that keep Indiana growing and business friendly.”
