State Sen. Ken Yager has been recognized as one of the eight best pro-business legislators in the Tennessee General Assembly by a key business magazine published by the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce.

The publication, “Business TN,” congratulated the Harriman Republican for a “100 percent business-positive, pro-jobs voting record.”  

“Business TN” annually selects the best state lawmakers based on their efforts in keeping “taxes
low and regulation minimal.”

“Two thirds of all new jobs are created by small business,” said Yager.  

“We must continue to foster a positive business climate to attract new and better paying jobs to our state.”

The publication also chose the honorees based on their legislative stances and their ability to have a positive effect on the state’s business climate.  

“On behalf of business in our state we greatly appreciate the leadership of Sen. Yager, who demonstrated 100-percent support on business issues with the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce & Industry,” said Bradley Jackson of the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce & Industry.  “We truly appreciate the leadership of all those who work to make Tennessee year after year one of the best places in the nation for business.”

Yager and the seven other lawmakers cited obtained a 100-percent pro-business voting record.

“I look forward to continuing to partner with our business community as we work to provide more opportunities for Tennesseans in the future,” he said.
