BIPEC has released its Legislator “Business & Jobs” Report Card for the 2019 legislative session. The BIPEC Report Card recognizes “Business & Jobs Champions” for their work supporting economic growth, job development, and business-related issues for the legislative session. This year’s Report Card is also a special election-year edition that includes each legislator’s 4-Year grade average for the legislative term.
View the interactive version of the report card at BIPEC.org. Click the heading links to switch between Representatives and Senators. The report card is sortable by grade, legislator name, party, and district. You can hover over the bill names to see a description of each bill. When you click on a legislator’s name, you will see a list of bills with links to the bill and to the individual votes recorded at the Mississippi Legislative Website.
In 1980, BIPEC was founded by Mississippi’s business and professional leaders to supply needed political research information. Founders wanted credible information to identify legislative candidates who understood needs and concerns of employers…these employers are the people who take risks to create jobs, stimulate our economy and give back to communities! Use this guide to determine and assess your legislator’s support of the employers who provide the jobs our state needs to thrive. Our objective is to assist with the constituent/voters quest for legislative accountability and transparency.
