Kenley praised for voting record


Senate President Pro Tempore David Long (R-Fort Wayne) has praised State Sen. Luke Kenley (R-Noblesville) for his outstanding 2012 voting attendance record of 98.7 percent.

“Sen. Kenley continues to do a terrific job of representing Hoosiers in Senate District 20, and that’s demonstrated through his exemplary voting record,” said Long. “He takes his responsibilities as a state lawmaker seriously.”

Long added that Kenley’s floor votes totaled 366.

“This session, 161 Senate bills moved to the Governor’s desk,” he said. “These pieces of legislation represent the people’s work, including ensuring workplace freedom, eliminating Indiana’s inheritance tax, funding full-day kindergarten and streamlining college credit transferability.”

For the 2012 session, state records show that 158 of the 161 bills that went to the governor for his signature into law were bipartisan in nature. Of these, 91 bills were unanimous.
