The “Friend of Grocers” award is given to legislators who score highly on the WGA’s Legislative Report Card – an extensive study of all legislators’ performance in the 2015-2016 Legislative Session. Lawmakers are graded according to their actions on certain issues that are especially important to the grocery industry, including: liquor invoicing legislation; allowing grocers to sell growlers; and several labor issues.
The GOP has an 18-15 advantage in the State Senate, 63-36 in the Assembly.
