The scorecard gives each legislator a score based on how they voted in the prior legislative term on tax issues and “their efforts to balance the state budget without a tax increase.” The organization also compiles a legislator’s individual "Lifetime Score."[3]


DeKruif received a score of 71% in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 17th out of all 67 Minnesota State Senate members.[4]


DeKruif received a score of 85% in the 2011 scorecard, ranking 8th out of all 67 Minnesota State Senate members.[5]
