NPRI’s Legislative report card

Victor Joecks

Thanks to everyone who came to the Henderson Tea Party and was interested in the Nevada Policy Research Institute’s Legislative report card. I’m sorry we ran out of hard copies, but as promised, you can read the whole report here.

Or if you prefer, the scorecard by itself is below, but I’d urge you to read the full report (the scorecard is on page 18) as well. It’s very informative and fully explains the percentages. The CliffsNotes version is that higher percentages are better and that if a legislator received a score of over 50 percent, he or she is generally considered to be a friend of the taxpayer.

Unfortunately, in the last session, only 11 lawmakers were friends of the taxpayer.
