(Sacramento, Ca.) The California Manufacturers & Technology Association announced today that State Senate Jeff Stone (R-Riverside) is one of 15 senators to receive their 2017 “Champions of Manufacturing” designation for his voting record of supporting important manufacturing legislation at least 70 percent of the time.
In fact, Senator Stone supported the CMTA’s recommendations 90 percent of the time in 2017.
“California legislative policies have a profound impact on manufacturing growth and investment in the State,” said CMTA President Dorothy Rothrock. “We commend the legislators who are demonstrating their commitment to manufacturing. It should be a high priority for all policymakers to make California competitive for new manufacturing investments.”
Senator Stone applauded CMTA’s efforts to hold Sacramento lawmakers accountable for their record when it comes to legislation supporting manufacturing and technology companies.
“There are many in Sacramento who talk the talk,” said Senator Stone. “Groups like CMTA help shine a light on those who truly walk the walk when it comes to the interests of business and manufacturing companies here in California.”
In his nearly three years in the State Senate, and before that for more than two decades as a Riverside County Supervisor and a Temecula City Councilman, Senator Stone has never wavered in his support of the business community.
This year, in addition to his CMTA voting record, Senator Stone is one of 10 legislators out of 120 whose voting record was 100% in alignment with the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer’s Association.
Senator Stone is also one of 10 state senators to post a perfect 16-0 mark in the 2017 California Chamber of Commerce Vote Record of Major Bills.
