Kids won’t be the only ones receiving report cards in Indiana this spring.

The Indiana Chamber of Commerce just released its annual Legislative Vote Analysis report, which scores state legislators based on their voting records during the 2014 General Assembly session, along with their two-year averages.

Scores are doled out based on the way legislators voted for pro-economy and pro-jobs legislation, according to a press release. These scoring standards are aligned with the chamber’s public policy positions.

Bills used in the report were chosen based on their impact to the state’s economy and workforce. 

Legislators in and around Elkhart County received the following scores: 

  • Rep. Wes Culver (R-District 49) – 2014 pro-jobs voting: 88%; two-year average: 86%
  • Rep. Rebecca Kubacki (R-District 22) – 2014 pro-jobs voting: 88%; two-year average: 91%
