STATEHOUSE (June 16, 2017) — State Rep. Greg Steuerwald (R-Avon) earned a 97 percent on the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s annual Legislative Vote Analysis for his support of pro-jobs, pro-economy legislation.

Steuerwald’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.

“Policies that benefit Hoosier workers and grow our economy are going to continue moving Indiana forward,” Steuerwald said. “Improving the state’s economic climate and reducing unemployment are always goals I try to work toward in the legislature.”

Steuerwald, chair of the House Committees on Ethics and Judiciary, received a four-year aggregate score of 98 percent.
