Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (July 31, 2013) — The League of Women Voters of Southwestern Indiana announce State Sen. Vaneta Becker (R-Evansville) as the 2013 recipient of the “Making Democracy Work” award.

Becker received the honor for “outstanding service at the state level” on behalf of Southwest Indiana women and families.

“What a tremendous honor to be recognized by such an influential and meaningful organization in our community,” Becker said. “I am very grateful for the positive legislation that’s come out of the General Assembly over the years to promote women’s health and other needs, but forever indebted to local leaders, like those on the League of Women Voters, who fuel an informed and active citizenry necessary to make these advancements.”

During the 2013 session of the General Assembly, Becker advanced legislation to improve breast cancer screenings, promote new technologies in health care and increase funding for the University of Southern Indiana.

League president, Roberta Heiman, praised Becker for her leadership of more than 30 years.

“She is an example that women in public office do make a difference,” Heiman said.  “Senator Becker has been a steadfast advocate for health care and other services for women and children, the elderly and veterans, at the same time as providing leadership on bills dealing with transportation, higher education and other issues.”
