Lawson recognized for voter record

Friday, April 2, 2010

INDIANAPOLIS -- State Sen. Connie Lawson (R-Danville) was recognized Monday by Senate President Pro Tempore David Long (R-Fort Wayne) for achieving an outstanding voting attendance record of 100 percent during the 2010 regular legislative session.

"Legislators are elected to be the voice of their constituents at the Statehouse," Long said. "This is often much easier said than done because important committee meetings or other critical matters may occur simultaneously while the Senate is in session. Senator Lawson's commitment to the citizens she represents is clearly shown by her excellent voting record."

In addition to votes on bills, there are also votes on amendments, committee reports and procedural motions.

Long also commended Lawson and other senators for working with fellow lawmakers of both political parties.

"Hoosiers should know we made it a priority to work together this session," Long said. "Every bill that became law received bipartisan support in the Senate and 74 percent passed unanimously."
