The Yankee Institute, a pro-market think tank, releases its Voter Guide after each two-year legislative term. Each member of the Connecticut General Assembly receives a score from 0 to 10 based on how he or she voted in ten key votes. The Institute selects key votes which "reveal the differences between those legislators that would harness the power of individual liberty and the market to improve lives, and those that prefer a centrally-planned approach." A legislator with a 10 voted in agreement with the Yankee Institute on all 10 votes, while a legislator with a 0 voted against the Yankee Institute's views or was absent for all 10 votes.
D'Amelio received a score of 6 on the Yankee Institute's Voter Guide for 2011-12, tied for the 40th highest score among the 152 scored members of the Connecticut House of Representatives. This score was 3 lower than his score of 9 for the 2009-10 term.
