Students will be bringing home their final report cards over the next few weeks as the school year comes to a close. Members of the Indiana General Assembly received their 2008 grades yesterday with the release of the Indiana Chamber’s 24th annual Legislative Vote Analysis.
The 2008 edition rates all 150 legislators on how supportive or unsupportive they were of issues important to businesses and their employees.
Each legislator receives a score based on how often his or her votes align with the pro-jobs, pro-economic growth agenda. In addition to being published and distributed statewide, the scores are used to help determine which incumbent legislators are eligible for endorsement in their next campaign by Indiana Business for Responsive Government (IBRG) – the Chamber’s political action committee.
