The NC Chamber is pleased to release the 2021-2022 edition of our How They Voted report.

General Assembly and grades the performance of state legislators when given the chance to stand up for job creators on these priorities.

In many ways, the 2021-2022 biennium of the General Assembly continued the trend of bipartisanship established in 2020, during the most challenging days of the pandemic. There were certainly disagreements and divides on impactful policy, as there always are and always will be in any well-functioning legislative body. This session, however, when it came to the biggest priorities, members of the General Assembly from the House and Senate and from both sides of the political aisle stepped up to provide North Carolinians with a bipartisan path forward through lingering uncertainty.
All of the votes scored in this final recap of the 2021-2022 biennium are from the 2021 legislative session, so our list of Jobs Champions remains unchanged. It should be noted that recognition as a Jobs Champion does not equate to an endorsement of future candidacy by the NC Chamber, the NC Chamber PAC, or any other Chamber-affiliated entity.
We applaud each of these legislators for stepping up when it mattered most this session to support job creators and nurture growth and success for communities and families across our state. As we work with these elected leaders to continue elevating our competitive business climate in the year ahead, we are thankful to our valued members and our many partners in pro-growth advocacy for putting your trust in the NC Chamber as the voice for North Carolina’s broad-based business community.
