On his campaign website, Anderson outlined these issues as his main concerns:
- Education - Bill Anderson believes we must support effective educators, increase access to educational opportunities, and leave individual school decisions at the local level.
- Agriculture - Bill Anderson is a lifelong resident of Woodbury County and understands agriculture is the constant driving force to the Iowa economy. We must support our agricultural communities and encourage private investments to expand the markets.
- Taxpayers and Businesses - Bill Anderson believes taxpayers pay enough in taxes and we deserve to see how these dollars are collected and spent by government. An open and transparent government will help all of us to analyze and curb accounting games within the state budget.

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
- Legislators are scored on "their records on constitutional principles and civil liberties."
- Legislators are scored on their votes on "key conservative issues."
- Legislators are scored on their votes with or against SC's official position.
Anderson and his wife, Angie, have two children.
