Georgia State Senator Brandon Beach of Alpharetta has received an A+ on the Georgia Chamber of Commerce's 2014 legislative scorecard.
The scorecard recognizes legislators that "supported pro-business initiatives" during the 2014 legislative session, according to a news release from the Georgia Senate's press office.
"The work conducted by the chamber on behalf of the state is admirable, especially their work with our transportation system," Beach said. "The chamber does a great job of ensuring funds for Georgia Regional Transportation Authority Xpress Bus System, which continues to serve as a great resource for commuters living outside the perimeter. I am honored to receive this recognition and look forward to continuing to work with the chamber on behalf of District 21 and Georgia."
Initiatives enhancing Georgia's competitiveness through economic development, legal reform, business and industry, environment and energy and education were designated as scorecard issues by the chamber's Government Affairs Council prior to the start of the 2014 legislative session.
Each legislator’s grade reflects an assessment of his or her support for pro-business legislation and the business community.
