In March 2014, Miller sponsored legislation to eliminate a loophole in Pennsylvania law defining the crime of stalking. The bill would remove an exemption for union members engaging in labor disputes and would apply anti-stalking law, which includes "repeated activity which causes fear of bodily injury or emotional distress in another," to union members. The Pennsylvania House also passed the bill in March 2014. Miller said that allowing anyone to get away with a crime like stalking could serve as a gateway to more serious offenses.

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.
