California’s Pro-Family Legislative Scorecard

Capitol Resource Family Impact is pleased to announce its Legislative Scorecard for the last legislative session, which ran from 2007 to 2008.

“This scorecard is California’s only pro-family tool for tracking how Sacramento legislators vote on social issues,” said Karen England, Executive Director of Capitol Resource Family Impact. “CRFI salutes nearly 20 elected officials for earning perfect scores over two years of voting.”

In the Assembly, these legislators are Joel Anderson, Chuck DeVore, Michael Duvall, Doug La Malfa, Alan Nakaniski, Jim Silva, Audra Strickland, Michael Villines, and Mimi Walters. The Senate is represented by Dick Ackerman, Roy Ashburn, James Battin, Dave Cogdill, Dave Cox, Bob Dutton, Dennis Hollingsworth, Tom McClintock, and George Runner.

“These men and women stood for timeless family values in an environment that is not always friendly to such convictions,” said Meredith Turney, Legislative Liaison for Capitol Resource Family Impact. “We hear from citizens all around California who are grateful for their work.”

Another 19 assemblymembers and senators came within one vote of receiving perfect scores.

Over half of California’s assemblymembers, however, received scores of 12 percent or lower. In the Senate, more than half received voting scores of 13 percent or less on vital social issues.

“It is our hope that, as CRFI works with new and returning legislators over the next two years, California will benefit from the strong voting records of even more ‘perfect score’ legislators,” England said.
