Legislative scorecard

Capitol Weekly, California's major weekly periodical covering the state legislature, publishes an annual legislative scorecard to pin down the political or ideological leanings of every member of the legislature based on how they voted on an assortment of bills in the most recent legislative session. The 2009 scores were based on votes on 19 bills, but did not include how legislators voted on the Proposition 1A (2009). On the scorecard, "100" is a perfect liberal score and "0" is a perfect conservative score.[3][4]

On the 2009 Capitol Weekly legislative scorecard, Silva ranked as a 3.[5]

Silva's sponsored legislation includes:

  • AB 269 - Elections: corruption of voting
  • AB 322 - Less lethal weapons
  • AB 693 - State Board of Equalization: administration
