Legislative Review & Vote Record
The Legislative Review & Vote Record is one of several tools AWB members can use to evaluate how lawmakers responded to bills affecting the state’s business community during the legislative session.
About the AWB Legislative Review & Vote Record
AWB’s Government Affairs team, in conjunction with the AWB Government Affairs Council, selects the bills and amendments to be included in the vote record. Recommendations are then made to the AWB Executive Board, which has final approval over the record. As in previous years, this year’s record includes votes cast on final passage of bills, as well as amendments to certain bills. The narrative accompanying each issue area provides additional details on these measures. All votes are weighted equally in calculating each legislator’s voting record percentage. Finally, to give readers a better sense of each lawmaker’s voting performance over time, we’ve included their scores from the current legislative session, from the previous year and from their lifetime in the Legislature.
