The North Dakota Policy Council, a North Dakota-based nonprofit research organization, published the North Dakota Legislative Review, a comprehensive report on how state legislators voted during the 2011 legislative session. The scorecard seeks to show how North Dakota legislators voted on the principles the Council seeks to promote. The Council recorded and scored votes on both spending bills and policy bills, and awarded points accordingly. Policy issues voted upon included income tax cuts, pension reform, and government transparency. On spending legislation, the Council accorded a percentage score based on how much spending the legislator voted against. On policy legislation, scores range from the highest score (100%) to the lowest (0%). A higher score indicates that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Council. Johnson received a score of 42.17% on policy legislation and voted against 3.56% of state spending. Johnson was ranked 55th on policy and 55th on spending, out of 94 House members evaluated for the study.
Johnson and his wife, Donna, have three children and two grandchildren. They currently reside in Devils Lake, North Dakota.
