As a nonpartisan organization, we created this scorecard for the public to see how lawmakers and the legislature overall measure up on civil liberties issues. This scorecard is for informational purposes and does not reflect an endorsement of legislators who scored well or a rejection of those with low scores. Legislators make many promises during elections, but their votes and the ultimate outcome of legislation reveal where the legislature stands on issues that affect our freedom and liberty.
The 2019 Legislative Scorecard is much more comprehensive this year because we wanted to give members the full picture of issues we track. This session’s report contains two scorecards: One that weighs legislators individually, and another that evaluates the civil liberties score of the legislature as a whole.
