Chance earns 'A+' from Ga. Chamber

Sen. Ronnie Chance (R-Tyrone) has received an ‘A+’ grade on the Georgia Chamber of Commerce’s 2014 legislative scorecard.

The Georgia Chamber’s scorecard recognizes legislators that supported pro-business initiatives during the recent legislative session. Midterm assessments from the 2013 legislative session, as well as a final grade for the biennial legislative term, were also included on this year’s scorecard.

“As legislators, it’s important that we are always representing the best interests of those we serve, and that includes making sure businesses have the right tools and incentives needed for growth,” Chance said. “Supporting legislation that stimulates job creation and encourages investment has always been a priority of mine, even before I was elected to office. I am honored to be recognized by the Georgia Chamber and am thankful for their tireless efforts to keep Georgia competitive.”

Initiatives enhancing Georgia’s competitiveness through economic development, legal reform, business and industry, environment and energy, and education were designated as scorecard issues by the Georgia Chamber Government Affairs Council prior to the start of the 2014 legislative session. Each legislator’s grade reflects an assessment of his or her support for pro-business legislation and the business community.

“Decisions Georgia legislators make while serving in the General Assembly have long-term impacts on our state’s economic prospects,” said Georgia Chamber president and CEO Chris Clark. “Receiving a high score on the Georgia Chamber’s scorecard confirms a lawmaker’s commitment to passing job creation and economic development measures. We commend Sen. Chance for his support of Georgia’s business community.”
