JobsOhio Books Must Be Open

Legislation Long Overdue
- Excerpt: "This long-overdue legislation is to be applauded, both as good policy and as an example of bipartisan cooperation among Democrats and Republicans at the Statehouse. May we continue to see much more such cooperation on matters of vital public interest on Capitol Square."
Legislation Helps Reduce Recidivism
- Excerpt: "Congratulations to state Rep. Tracy Maxwell Heard, D-Columbus, and her fellow Democratic and Republican lawmakers on this much-needed legislation. Over 90 percent of Ohio's prison inmates will be released at some time. This legislation helps provide viable employment options to give them a chance to become productive, tax-paying citizens and to reduce recidivism."
Term Limits Revolving Door
- Excerpt: "Nearly one in five Ohio lawmakers has been appointed rather than elected, a development that is stoking the debate over term limits."

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