From the office of Sen. Nancy Jacobs:
Senator Nancy Jacobs was honored by Maryland Business for Responsive Government (MBRG) for her voting record for jobs and her support for creating a positive economic development climate in Maryland at a reception to be held by the organization on February 15th.
Roll Call is an independent publication published by MBRG that reviews legislators’ support for jobs and business-friendly legislation in Annapolis. The votes chosen for inclusion in Roll Call are carefully selected by a non-partisan cross section of diverse business interests after the legislature has adjourned, sine die.
This year, MBRG honored a group of top scoring Democrats and Republicans with at least four years of service who have the highest cumulative scores in the House and the Senate, including their 2011 scores.
“Experience counts and Senator Jacobs has been among the top scorers in Annapolis in either party since she was elected to the House of Delegates in 1995. In the legislature, she has been consistently mindful of the effect of legislation on the business community, ensuring a fair judicial system and standing firm against taxes on Maryland’s working families,” said Kimberly M. Burns, president of MBRG.
“A high Roll Call score one year is one thing, but a consistently high Roll Call score that stands the test of time is an outstanding indicator that Nancy Jacobs is the ‘real deal’ when it comes to her concern for Maryland’s economic development climate and job creation in Maryland,” she said.
2011 is the 26th year of publication for Roll Call. Senator Jacob’s cumulative score is 92% since she started in the General Assembly in 1995. In 2011, she achieved a perfect 100%,
