State Representative Steve Reick (R-Woodstock) has earned a 90% success rating on the 2017 scorecard issued by the Illinois Technology & Manufacturing Association (TMA). The score is based on Reick’s votes on ten bills that affect the manufacturing industry and the overall Illinois economy.
“Illinois is losing manufacturing jobs at an alarming rate, and those jobs are leaving due to the unfriendly business climate,” Reick said. “We need to ease the burdensome regulations that hamstring our job creators so we can grow our economy.”
TMA President Steven Rauschenberger said that as a freshman lawmaker Reick has proven himself to be a champion for the manufacturing industry. “Representative Reick’s voting record demonstrates an understanding of the importance of economic growth and expansion of career choice in Illinois. He understands that intrusive state regulation of employers can be a solution in search of a problem.”
The Technology and Manufacturing Association assists Illinois’ $100 billion manufacturing sector through advice, education and other programs and also advocates for legislation to help the industry succeed in Illinois.
