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.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Texas scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.


In 2013, the Legislature was in session from January 7 to April 27.

Legislators are scored on "hotlisted bills that represent a portfolio of priority conservation and environmental issues."[9]
Legislators are scored on bills of importance to a state teachers' union.
Legislators are scored on issues of importance to a public interest advocacy group based at the University of Montana in Missoula.
Legislators are scored on bills relating to property rights.


Hill is married.
