BIPEC has released its Legislator “Business & Jobs” Report Card for the 2019 legislative session. The BIPEC Report Card recognizes “Business & Jobs Champions” for their work supporting economic growth, job development, and business-related issues for the legislative session. This year’s Report Card is also a special election-year edition that includes each legislator’s 4-Year grade average for the legislative term.
Some Senators scoring high A’s in both categories include: Sen. Kevin Blackwell, Sen. Jennifer Branning, Sen. Josh Harkins, Sen. Sally Doty and many others. While those that scored in the lowest were: Sen. Angela Turner-Ford, Sen. Barbara Blackmon, Sen. Sollie Norwood, and Sen. Hillman Frazier.
Some Representatives scoring high A’s include: Rep. Shane Aguirre, Rep. Mark Baker, Rep. Charles Busby, Rep. Robert Foster and many others. Those who scored in the F range on both categories include: Rep. Bryant Clark, Rep. Alyce G. Clarke, Rep. Kathy Sykes and Rep. Sonya Williams Barnes.
We will be mailing a printed version of the report card to all BIPEC members in the coming days. If you would like additional copies of the report card, please let us know.
