Issues

Automobile Inspections

Tillman spoke against a bill to exempt cars four years old or younger from mandatory automobile inspections, required in North Carolina since 1966. He argued that the exemption would hurt the 7,500 businesses which perform the inspections and rely on the inspection fees for income. The House/Senate Joint Transportation Oversight Committee defeated the bill 7-5. The John Locke Foundation identified the continuation of mandatory automobile inspection as an example of "cronyism."[1]

Scorecards

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 North Carolina scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
