STATEHOUSE (June 26, 2018) — State Rep. Ed Soliday (R-Valparaiso) earned a 97 percent on the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s annual Legislative Vote Analysis for his pro-economy, pro-jobs voting record.

Soliday’s score is based on his performance during the 2018 session of the Indiana General Assembly and his votes cast in agreement with the Indiana Chamber’s position on 28 bills. Legislation included requiring computer science courses in schools, workforce-related provisions and establishing a water infrastructure task force.

“Employers and citizens alike should seek to have a clear, objective understanding of how their legislators vote on vital issues and in turn, how that impacts their individual prosperity,” said Indiana Chamber President and CEO Kevin Brinegar. “We applaud Representative Soliday for helping to ensure that a number of positive policies were passed to aid working Hoosiers and their families, and employers in their efforts to fill and grow jobs.”

According to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, Indiana’s statewide unemployment rate as of April stood at 3.2 percent, which is lower than the national average of 3.8 percent. The Nonpartisan Tax Foundation reported Indiana has the No. 1 business climate in the Midwest and has the fourth lowest property taxes nationwide.

“Businesses, small and large, create jobs and spur economic growth in our community and across the state,” Soliday said. “I will continue to support policies that help Hoosier workers and drive Indiana’s economy forward.”

Soliday received a four-year aggregate score of 95 percent.
