Out of all roll call votes, 90 individual legislators did not miss any votes. 3 individual legislators missed more than 50 votes. Orwall missed 40 votes in a total of 1211 roll calls. Orwall responded to the number of votes missed. “I had to leave Olympia a couple of nights this session to tend to some important family matters. As you can see from my previous voting record, I missed only 14 votes throughout the past 5 sessions since I’ve been in office. My family issues required my attention on two nights this year, but many bills went to the Floor those two evenings.”

The Freedom Foundation releases its Big Spender List annually. The Institute ranks all Washington legislators based on their total proposed taxes and fees. To find each legislator’s total, the Institute adds up the 10-year tax and fee increases or decreases, as estimated by Washington’s Office of Financial Management, of all bills sponsored or co-sponsored by that legislator.
Orwall proposed a 10-year increase in state taxes and fees of $6.27 billion, the 12th highest amount of proposed new taxes and spending of the 93 Washington state representatives on the Freedom Foundation’s 2012 Big Spender List.
The Freedom Foundation also issued its 2012 Informed Voter Guide for Washington State voters, including a legislative score card documenting how Washington State legislators voted upon bills the Foundation deemed important legislation. The legislation analyzed covered budget, taxation, and pension issues. A sign indicates a bill more in line with the Foundation's stated goals, and a sign indicates a bill out of step with the Foundation's values. Here's how Orwall voted on the specific pieces of legislation:
