LEGISLATIVE SCORECARDS AND GRADES

SUMMARY –
This is the Maryland Legislative Coalition’s fourth year of producing scorecards and grades for all of our legislators for the session.  This year, as with last year, we are presenting the scorecard with 3 components:
· Voting Record
· Committee Efficiency
· Individual Initiative

We have done this to provide objective information on the behaviors that we believe constituents are interested in: how their representatives vote, what their committees get done and how active they are in sponsoring and leading the passage of legislation in accordance with our values.

Voting Record –
This year, as with last year, only floor votes were scored.  We have tracked the votes for bills that failed in committee, but have not presented those statistics here.

Committee Efficiency –
Committees were scored in terms of their rate of passage of bills, using our 216 priority bills, and each legislator was given the grade corresponding to the committee they were on. Some committees only passed 56% of the bills that they saw out of committee, while others passed 100%. It is our hope that this will shine a light on the need for committees to function efficiently and effectively, particularly given the compressed schedule of the Maryland legislature.  Committee leaders are shown in bold on the Committee column.

Individual Initiative –
The individual initiative score rates bills sponsored, as a subset of our 216 priority bills, by each legislator. Here we are attempting to draw attention to the individual leadership of legislators, beyond the work of the committee they were assigned to. 

Together we hope that the 3 scores – the voting record, the individual initiative and the efficiency of the committee of each representative, provides constituents with an objective and balanced view of the performance of each legislator.
