EVCCA 2019 Report Card
EVCCA 2019 Report Card
Each year, the East Valley Chambers of Commerce Alliance (EVCCA) produces a report on the legislative session, which lists bills that have the most significance to East Valley businesses. It reports how each East Valley legislator voted on legislation relevant to the EVCCA.

Legislators were graded on how often they agreed with the EVCCA on priority bills, based on their last opportunity to vote on that bill during the Second Regular Session of the 54th Legislature. An unexcused absence was graded as opposing the EVCCA’s position.
