Chamber releases ‘Free Enterprise Index’

The Ohio Chamber of Commerce has released its Free Enterprise Index, which it calls “a compilation of how members of the Ohio General Assembly voted on bills that most closely align with the Ohio Chamber’s mission.”

“Our Free Enterprise Index highlights actions state lawmakers are taking to grow Ohio’s economy,” Chamber Vice President of Government Affairs Keith Lake said in a statement. “And, it provides Ohio Chamber members with the necessary information to identify pro-business legislators and gauge legislator performance while underscoring the crucial importance of issues that impact Ohio’s business climate.”

This year’s index highlights six votes in the Senate and seven in the House. These bills include the state’s biennial budget which included a $1.2 billion tax cut (HB 64) and more.

Besides producing a printed copy of the Free Enterprise Index, key business votes can be tracked on the Ohio Chamber’s website at Click on “bill tracking” under the “issue advocacy” tab.

The Ohio Chamber of Commerce says it has 8,000 members.
