Chamber Grades Senator Williams
Sunday, 26 May 2013

May 26-- State Senator Tommie Williams (R-Lyons) has received the highest ranking given on the Georgia Chamber’s Legislative Scorecard. The Chamber’s legislative scorecard recognizes legislators that supported strong business initiatives during the 2013 legislative session.

Image“I am honored to receive this high ranking from the esteemed Georgia Chamber,” said Sen. Williams.  “Creating an environment for that is attractive to businesses is crucial to the economic development of our state.  Regardless of whether the business is a family owned onion stand or a large corporation like Coca-Cola, their rights and privileges must be protected.”

Throughout the 2013 Georgia General Assembly session, legislators addressed a number of issues important to the state’s business community. Legislation enhancing Georgia's competitiveness through education, economic development, business and industry, and judiciary reform were designated as scorecard issues by the Georgia Chamber Government Affairs Council and are included in this year's legislative scorecard. Each legislator’s grade, given by the Georgia Chamber, reflects an assessment of his or her support for business community priorities.

“What is clear from this year’s scorecard is that lawmakers – both Democrat and Republican – are taking private-sector growth seriously. They realize how important these issues are to the state and to their constituents and that we must take action to encourage investment and job creation,” said Georgia Chamber President and CEO Chris Clark. “We are proud that there was such broad-based, bipartisan support for each of the scorecard bills. As a result, we will improve Georgia’s overall competitiveness and reputation as a state that is open for business. We commend Senator Williams for his dedication and commitment to the betterment of our state.”
