“Legislators are elected to be the voice of their constituents at the Statehouse,” Long said. “This is often much easier said than done. Senators frequently have meetings, visitors and many other activities occurring simultaneously. Sen. Alting’s commitment to the citizens he represents is clearly shown by his excellent voting attendance record.”

In addition to votes on bills, there are also votes on amendments, committee reports and procedural motions.

“My foremost responsibility as a state senator is to ensure my constituents’ voices are heard on issues that come before the General Assembly,” Alting said. “I am committed to the citizens of Senate District 22 and representing their viewpoints.”

Long also commended Alting and other senators for working with fellow lawmakers of both political parties.

“Hoosiers may be pleased to know the Indiana Senate passed 98.7 percent of legislation with bipartisan votes and 58.7 percent unanimously,” Long said.

Sen. Alting represents Senate District 22, which includes a portion of Tippecanoe County.
