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. Barnard received a score of 39% in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 18th out of 31 members of the Wyoming State Senate. Although there are 30 members of the Senate, a 31st "hypothetical legislator" voting nay on every bill was also included.
Barnard is married and has four children.
