Petty, Love Among KS Chamber Pro-Jobs Legislators
07/12/2013

The Kansas Chamber has released its 2013 Pro-Jobs Legislator list based on legislators’ support of sound business policy that strengthens our state’s economy and attracts jobs.

“This session the Legislature tackled many tough issues and tremendous progress was made in many areas that have made Kansas one of the most economically competitive states in the region,” said Kansas Chamber President and CEO Mike O’Neal. “The list of Pro-Jobs Legislators identifies lawmakers who voted at least 80 percent of the time to support a wide range of business issues and ensure the state’s economic health during the last session. The business community thanks these individuals for working to limit government and create jobs in Kansas.”

After each legislative session, the Kansas Chamber lists the business friendly lawmakers who voted in support of the tenets of free enterprise. The Pro-Jobs Legislator list focuses solely on the core business issues that impact the state’s economy. These issues range from initiatives aimed at creating a more business-friendly tax climate, containing healthcare costs, improving the legal climate, improving the workers compensation and unemployment compensation systems to promote a fair regulatory structure.

“Kansas businesses are working daily to keep their doors open and employees on the payroll. This legislative session Kansas moved forward with pro-business policies that help keep jobs in the state. The positive steps achieved this session would not have been possible without the efforts of pro-job legislators who understand the critical need for a healthy business climate,” added Kansas Chamber Chair of the Board of Directors Ivan Crossland, CEO of Crossland Construction in Columbus, Kansas.
