Every legislative cycle hundreds and sometimes thousands of bills go through each house. Some bills meet their appropriate fate either by passing or failing, however, several more meet an undeserved outcome, passage. The California State Legislature approves bills that, according to us, deserve to fail in the process.
Capitol Resource Institute’s (CRI) mission to advocate for family values in Sacramento and to inform the public about how politicians’ actions promote or undermine these values. The Legislative Scorecard is part of our effort to hold politicians accountable for their actions and to inform California’s citizens about whether the votes of their representatives reflect their values. Please use this scorecard the next time you visit your legislator’s office or attend a local townhall.
