Scorecards

Wyoming Liberty Index

The Wyoming Liberty Index, a study created in 2003, issues a Scorecard that rates all final bills in the Wyoming State Legislature on whether the bills supported or hindered liberty. Legislators are also given a "liberty score" based on their voting patterns. The Wyoming Liberty Index 2012 report was issued on the 61st Legislature during the 2012 budget session. Scores range from the highest score (100%) to the lowest (0%). A higher score indicates a higher level of "aye" votes on bills considered pro-liberty and "nay" votes on what the organization considers anti-liberty bills.[5] Greene received a score of 12% in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 53rd out of 61 members of the Wyoming House of Representatives. Although there are 60 members of the House, a 61st "hypothetical legislator" voting nay on every bill was also included.

Controversies

Residency issue

After the 2010 election, Greene's opponent, Seth Carson, filed a "notice to contest election," challenging Greene's eligibility to run for office in District 45. Carson claimed Greene failed to meet the state's residency requirement for holding office. Wyoming law requires that candidates must have lived in the district in which they are elected for the preceding 12 months. Greene had been deployed in Afghanistan from August 2009 to June 2010. When he left, he resided in District 13. While deployed, he was renting a storage unit in District 45, with the intention of signing a lease in the District when he returned home. Ultimately, Greene lost his challenge.[6][7]
