BIPEC Releases Legislator “Business and Jobs” Report Cards

JACKSON, Miss.- The Business and Industry Political Education Committee released its Legislator Business and Jobs Report Card Monday. Two Democrats received an “A” and 94 Republicans made up the rest of what BIPEC considers a “Business and Jobs Champion.”

Rep. Nick Bain was the only House Democrat to get an “A” and Sen. Steve Hale was the only Senate Democrat to get an “A.”

The grades were based on how lawmakers voted on 10 bills during the session that ended in April.

Mississippi Association of Builders and Contractors president and CEO Buddy Edens said the report serves as “an unbiased assessment” of where lawmakers stand on legislation meant to either reform or create new business policy.

Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said, “Government does not create jobs. It’s our job to create an environment so the private sector can invest capital and create jobs. These are the votes that come before the Legislature that create that environment.”
