STATEHOUSE (June 16, 2017) — State Rep. Kevin Mahan (R-Hartford City) earned a perfect score on the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s annual Legislative Vote Analysis for his support of pro-jobs, pro-economy legislation. 

Mahan’s score is based on his performance during the 2017 session of the Indiana General Assembly and his votes cast in agreement with the Indiana Chamber’s position on certain bills, including measures on long-term road funding, ISTEP replacement and pre-K expansion for children from low-income families.                                

“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,” said Indiana Chamber President and CEO Kevin Brinegar. 

According to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, Indiana’s statewide unemployment rate as of April stood at 3.6 percent, which is lower than the national average of 4.4 percent. U.S. News and World Report ranked Indiana as the best-run state in America based on fiscal responsibility, streamlined operations, improved services and enhanced transparency. 

“It’s clear that our state is on the right track,” Mahan said. “With a top business climate and low unemployment rate, Indiana continues to be an economic leader. As we work on issues facing the state, I will remain focused on sound, pro-growth policies that keep Indiana moving forward.” 

Mahan, chair of the House Committee on Government and Regulatory Reform, received a four-year aggregate score of 93 percent.
