Georgia Chamber scores legislators’ votes on business legislation; Coweta delegation all across the spectrum
The Georgia Chamber released its legislative scorecard for the 2013 session of the Georgia General Assembly, and Coweta’s legislative representation received wildly different grades for their voting on bills marked favorable to business by the Georgia Chamber.
The Georgia Chamber, a statewide chamber of commerce, researches all bills introduced by the General Assembly and determines their importance to the business community of Georgia. Those issues deemed most important to job creation and the state’s economic recovery were designated as scorecard issues by the Government Affairs Council of the Georgia Chamber and individual legislators’ votes are included in this year’s Legislative Scorecard.
A legislator’s support of those identified bills was given a midterm assessment with a final grade given after the conclusion of the 2014 General Assembly session. The grades are similar to school grades and include: A+ (100-95), A (94-90), B+ ( 89-85), B (84-80), C+ (79-75), C (74-70), U (Below 70 or Unsatisfactory), and N/A (Not Eligible for Score). (More)
