Our inaugural Political Hurricane Progressive Policy Scorecard for the Florida Senate will be released Wednesday morning. In the scorecard we rate each Senator on 20 key votes taken during the 2011 and 2012 legislative sessions. The policy areas covered include legal reform, education, women’s reproductive rights, regulation of firearms, environmental issues, election “reform,” tax and budgetary matters, redistricting and privatization of government services.
Unlike many powerful interest groups, we do not have staff to pull and compile this information during session, but in future years we hope to be able to provide a clear indication what floor votes will be scored as they occur.
We will release our House of Representatives scorecard the week of April 23rd.
