Wednesday, July 12th, 2023
The Georgia Chamber of Commerce, the state’s largest and most influential business advocacy organization, has released its official 2023 Legislative Scorecard showcasing how members of the general assembly voted on the business community’s top issues during the legislative session.
The Georgia Chamber’s legislative team and its members tracked over 300 bills impacting statewide job creation, small business success, and economic development. Of those bills, 8 were designated as “Scorecard” legislation due to their significant implications. This year, 77% of state Senators and 100% of Representatives received a passing grade on the Georgia Chamber Scorecard.
“For 108 years, the Georgia Chamber has existed to advocate for our state’s economic prosperity. Through legislative engagement driven by input from our investors, we strive to ensure Georgia remains the number one state to do business for years to come,” said David Raynor, Chief Public Affairs Officer for the Georgia Chamber. “This Scorecard is a testament to the pro-business focus that our general assembly prioritized this year. Our organization looks forward to working with Governor Brian Kemp, Lieutenant Governor Burt Jones, Speaker Jon Burns, and the entire general assembly to continue this record of success for our state’s job creators.”
