State Sen. Eckerty recognized for
100 percent voting attendance record
Senate President Pro Tempore David Long (R-Fort Wayne) today recognized State Sen. Doug Eckerty (R-Yorktown) for his outstanding 2011 voting attendance record of 100 percent.
“Often, important meetings or other matters can happen simultaneously while the Senate is in session – which can make casting every vote a challenge,” Long said. “I believe Senator Eckerty’s strong commitment to Senate District 26 is clearly shown by his perfect record.”
This session, 118 Senate bills moved to the governor’s desk.
“These pieces of legislation represent the people’s work, including a balanced budget, private-sector job initiatives, education improvements and a fair redistricting plan,” Long said. “I’m proud to say Senator Eckerty gave his best throughout the legislative process.”
This session, state records show 299 of 317 Third Reading roll call votes in the Senate were bipartisan in nature. Of these, 128 were unanimous.
