Sinclair boasts 100 percent job creation voting record

Published: Wednesday, July 30, 2014 9:26 a.m. CDT

State Sen. Amy Sinclair, R-Allerton, received a 100 percent score to protect and grow jobs in Iowa during the 85th General Assembly from the non-partisan Iowa Prosperity Project.

“I am very proud of the legislation we passed to strengthen Iowa’s economy and create private sector jobs,” Sinclair said. “Iowans trust us to make hard decisions at the Statehouse to create an environment where high-quality jobs are plentiful for all Iowans. Those decisions are bearing fruit as 94 out of 99 Iowa counties have experienced a decline in unemployment levels from one year ago. I am proud of my 100 percent voting record to make this vision a reality.”

The Iowa Prosperity Project is managed by the Iowa Association of Business and Industry (ABI).

The group announced last week the scores of every member in the Iowa House and Iowa Senate. ABI is an organization of a variety of Iowa businesses, such as manufacturers, retailers and insurance companies, to promote commerce in the state.

The score rates each legislator on their votes for policies impacting jobs and business in Iowa.

The issues scored by the Iowa Prosperity Project included rolling back commercial, industrial and railroad property taxes by 10 percent, making Iowa more attractive to recruit and retain veterans and education reforms.
