Senator Cecil Staton Earns Perfect Score and A+ from Georgia Chamber

 

ATLANTA – Sen. Cecil Staton (R- Macon) has received the highest ranking given on the Georgia Chamber of Commerce’s Legislative Scorecard. The Chamber’s legislative scorecard recognizes legislators that were most supportive of the business community during the 2012 Legislative Session.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized by the Georgia Chamber for my efforts to enact pro-business legislation aimed at strengthening Georgia’s private sector and our economy,” said Sen. Staton. “Serving as a member of the Senate Rules, Senate Appropriations, Senate Finance and Senate Banking and Financial Institutions Committees, as well as Majority Whip, it was a privilege to work with legislators and interested stakeholders to make Georgia a better place to live, work and do business.”

Throughout the 2012 Georgia General Assembly session, legislators addressed a number of issues important to the state’s business community. Legislation deemed most important to enhancing Georgia’s economic competitiveness through education, economic development, business and industry, and judiciary reform were designated as scorecard issues by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce 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.

“The A+ grade given by the Georgia Chamber to State Sen. Cecil Staton reflects an unwavering commitment to bringing jobs, investment and long-term economic growth to Georgia,” said Georgia Chamber President and CEO, Chris Clark.  “Without question, Sen. Staton is a true champion of the state’s business community and we are tremendously grateful to have such a strong voice at the Capitol working to strengthen Georgia’s pro-business climate and help companies across the state effectively compete in the global marketplace.”

Sen. Staton is one of only nine legislators to have received an A+ rating for two consecutive years by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.
