SPRINGFIELD -- State Sen. Bill
Brady, R-Bloomington, has been named a "Champion of Free Enterprise"
by the Illinois Chamber of
Commerce for his support of legislation designed to strengthen
the state's jobs climate.
During the 2007-2008 session of the General Assembly, the 44th
District senator's votes closely reflected the chamber's position on
bills it selected as representing the business community's consensus
Todd Maisch, chamber vice president of government affairs, says the
Champion of Free Enterprise Award is designed to help the business
community identify those state legislators, like Brady, who have
shown a commitment to helping the Illinois economy stay strong.
Brady earned 100 percent ratings for the 2007-2008, 2005-2006 and
2003-2004 legislative sessions.
"The Illinois Chamber looks at legislators' votes on key issues
we think are important to the business community," Maisch said.
"Such ratings give business owners a better idea of lawmakers'
support for employers, jobs and the economy. It is important for us,
in turn, to support legislators like Sen. Brady who have shown a
commitment to a healthy business climate and jobs growth."
Measures used in the rating process include tax incentives for
employers, insurance coverage for employees and environmental
