State Senator Bill Ketron (R-Murfreesboro) has received the highest possible ranking from the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber rates legislators according to their voting record on Chamber-backed bills considered during the 108th General Assembly. Ketron, who serves in a leadership role in the Tennessee General Assembly as Senate Republican Caucus Chairman, received an “A+” grade of 100 percent.
“We are proud to recognize Senator Ketron and our General Assembly members who have voted 100% with the Tennessee Chamber,” said Bradley Jackson, Vice President for the Tennessee Chamber Government Affairs Program. “It is because of legislators like Senator Ketron, Tennessee consistently enjoys top economic and business rankings and is a great place to start and grow a business.”
“I’m honored to receive the top ranking from the Chamber of Commerce,” said Senator Ketron. “As a small businessman, I understand the challenges faced today by businesses. I stand with the Chamber to improve Tennessee’s economy and business climate in a very competitive global market.”
