2010

Oletha Faust-Goudeau received a rating of 13% 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

Oletha Faust-Goudeau received a score of 35.3% in the 2013 index.[9]
