Scorecards

Kansas Economic Freedom Index

The Kansas Economic Freedom Index is a project of Bob Weeks, creator of the blog Voice For Liberty in Wichita. The purpose of the Index "is to identify Kansas legislators who vote in favor of economic freedom — and those who don’t."[6] Legislators receive a rating from 0-100 percent based on their votes on bills promoting economic freedom.

2010

Mike Petersen received a rating of 80% on the 2010 Kansas Economic Freedom Index.[7]

Kansas Freedom Index

The Kansas Policy Institute, Kansas’s "first free market think tank," releases its legislator scorecard as a part of its Kansas Freedom Index for Kansas state representatives and senators once a year. The Score Card gives each legislator a score from 1%-100% based on how they voted in the prior legislative term on specific issues which the Kansas Policy Institute thought were pro-limited government policies.[8]

2013

Mike Petersen received a score of 62.1% in the 2013 index.[9]
