Scorecards

Arkansas’s Freedom Scorecard

The Advance Arkansas Institute, an Arkansas-based nonprofit research and educational organization, released "Arkansas's Freedom Scorecard" in 2012 and 2013. The scorecard seeks to show how Arkansas legislators voted on the principles the Institute seeks to promote. It measures each state legislator in six categories, which include economic freedom, education reform, good government, personal liberty, small government and tax/budget policy. Scores range from the highest score (100%) to the lowest (0%). A higher score indicates that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Institute.[10] Rice received a score of 70% in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 31st out of 97 members of the Arkansas House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study. Rice received a score of 61% in the 2013 scorecard, ranking 50th out of 99 members of the Arkansas House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.
