On June 18, we reported the Arizona Conservative Coalition (ACC) would release a final, updated scoring for the just completed legislative session. The most recent ratings reflecting legislative actions as of 6/28/13 are now available. Click here for the updated report and individual scores. There are six categories, ranging from Reagan Republican down to RINO.
Howard Levine’s informative narrative can be read here. The Governor’s score will be published separately next week due to the fact that her final actions on the last couple of bills occurred this week, and require review before releasing her score.
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 92.0 down to a disgraceful 34.2. In the House of Representatives the top scorer received a 96.1 with the bottom of the list rating a feeble 36.0.
The FAQs section responds to some of the questions the folks at ACC have been getting regarding the grades assigned.
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.
