STATEHOUSE (June 16, 2017) — State Rep. Sharon Negele (R-Attica) earned a 94 percent on the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s annual Legislative Vote Analysis for her support of pro-jobs, pro-economy legislation.
Negele’s score is based on her performance during the 2017 session of the Indiana General Assembly and her 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.
“This session, lawmakers passed a balanced, two-year budget while also making the largest state and local infrastructure investment in Indiana’s history,” Negele said. “As an elected official, I’ll continue to vote for policies that build on this success and help to create an environment to attract new businesses and skilled workers to Indiana.”
Negele, a member of the House Committee on Ways and Means, received a four-year aggregate score of 95 percent.
State Rep. Sharon Negele (R-Attica) represents all of Benton County, and portions
of Fountain, Jasper, Montgomery, Newton, Tippecanoe, Warren and White counties.
