Taxpayers League of Minnesota

The Taxpayers League of Minnesota, a Minnesota-based taxpayer advocacy organization, releases a legislative scorecard for the Minnesota House of Representatives and Minnesota State Senate once a year. The scorecard gives each legislator a score based on how they voted in the prior legislative term on tax issues and “their efforts to balance the state budget without a tax increase.” The organization also compiles a legislator’s individual "Lifetime Score."[3]


Crawford received a score of 86% in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 31st out of all 134 Minnesota House of Representatives members.[4]


Crawford received a score of 77% in the 2011 scorecard, ranking 59th out of all 134 Minnesota House of Representatives members. [5]
