State Representative David S. Olsen has earned a 90% success rating on the 2017 scorecard issued by the Illinois Technology & Manufacturing Association. The score is based on Olsen’s votes on ten bills that affect the manufacturing industry and overall economy in Illinois.
“The manufacturing industry provides critical jobs to Illinoisans, and as lawmakers we need to do everything we can to ease the regulatory burdens that have been driving these businesses out of our state,” said Olsen. “It’s an honor to be recognized for my voting record in this area, and I will continue to stand up for these job creators as bills move through the legislative process in Springfield.”
TMA President Steven Rauschenberger applauded Olsen for his voting record, and said that as a freshman lawmaker Olsen has proven himself to be a champion for the manufacturing industry. “Representative David Olsen has demonstrated his understanding of the importance of high paying manufacturing jobs in Illinois,” Rauschenberger said. “Olsen’s voting record shows that he favors commonsense regulation of employers in ways that will help grow opportunity in Illinois.”
