The Illinois Chamber honored 34 members of the Illinois House, including Demmer, and 13 members of the Illinois Senate with its biennial “Champion of Free Enterprise” award given in recognition of legislators’ support for voting to further economic opportunities for Illinoisans.
“The Chamber’s Legislative Ratings lets Illinois families, small businesses, and taxpayers know if legislators voted in favor of private sector job creation and a stronger economy,” said Todd Maisch, president and CEO of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce.
The Illinois Chamber’s Legislative Ratings tracks votes important to the state’s business community and grades legislators based on their support of pro-business issues during the two-year legislative session. Rep. Demmer has an average score of 92% over his past two terms.
“We all know we need to grow our revenue base in Illinois, and the best way to do that is with job creation and retention. That’s why I am proud to vote in favors of economic growth and job creation and honored to be recognized by the Chamber for continuing to do so,” said Rep. Demmer.
