Sen. Hershman Receives High Score from Indiana Chamber

STATEHOUSE (May 28, 2014) — The Indiana Chamber of Commerce recently released its 2014 Legislative Vote Analysis, which ranks state lawmakers based on their votes for pro-jobs, pro-economy measures. State Sen. Brandt Hershman (R-Buck Creek) received a score of 93 percent.


According to the Chamber, bills used in the report were selected based on their significant impact to the state’s economic climate and workforce. Hershman authored one of these bills – Senate Enrolled Act 1 – which gives local government units new options for cutting the business personal property tax and reduces the state’s corporate income tax rate.


Hershman received special recognition in the report for his exceptional leadership on SEA 1 and other economic issues.

“Senate Enrolled Act 1 helps the Hoosier economy by reducing taxes on job creators,” Hershman said. “At the same time, it grants local governments the flexibility to make a choice that’s right for their residents. I’m grateful for the General Assembly’s hard work on this bill and many others that will help Indiana better compete in a global economy.”
