STATEHOUSE – State Rep. Sharon Negele (R-Attica) was recently identified as a pro-economy, pro-jobs legislator in the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s annual Legislative Vote Analysis.

Negele earned a score of 100 percent based on her votes cast in agreement with the Indiana Chamber’s position on 38 bills during the 2019 legislative session. Legislation considered in the scoring included increased investment in rural broadband, significant water infrastructure funding, school accountability improvements and statewide preschool expansion, according to a news release.

“As a small-business owner, I understand the dedication it takes to grow and maintain a successful business,” Negele said. “Local communities and the state rely on hardworking Hoosiers for jobs and economic growth, and I will continue to support policies that aid these efforts.”

According to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, the state’s labor force has experienced record growth, with more than 37,000 Hoosiers entering the workforce since April 2018.

Negele was one of only six lawmakers to earn a perfect score of 100 percent for the 2019 session, and received a four-year aggregate score of 97 percent from the chamber.
