The Arizona Conservative Coalition’s (ACC) most recent legislator ratings, reflecting legislative actions as of 6/17/2013 is now available. Click here for the updated report.
Legislators are assigned to a group based on their latest rating. Bills used in the evaluation along with the summary of criteria used to weight bills can be seen here. There is also an excellent, concise analysis of each bill considered.
Be sure to take time to review Howard Levine’s informative weekly narrative, which provides background on the tracking process. This week he discusses a new feature added to the rating system. He also presents an overview of the despicable final days leading up to the legislative sine die.
The folks at ACC provide individual scores for Arizona’s Republican Representatives and Senators. There is quite a variation. This week the Senate ratings range from a high of 93.7 down to a shameful 34.0. In the House of Representatives the top scorer received a 96.2 with the bottom of the list rating a weak 35.5.
Take time to review the individual legislators and their scores. There are six categories, ranging from Reagan Republican to RINO.
In this end-of-session report of the legislature, RINOs came out of the underbrush and their disgraceful actions are fully exposed. Check out the nine House members and the four in the Senate who fit that description. Like a lead balloon, Adam Driggs dropped 20 points from the previous week’s score, but remained just a hair above the RINO label.
There will be a final, updated scoring report next week.
