  • Protecting our environment
Excerpt: "Arkansas is known as the Natural State, and our environment is among our most valuable resources in terms of tourism, economic development, and quality of life. We must recognize that these resources are finite and must be protected for our children and grandchildren, and in doing so, we can promote and enhance business opportunities, rather than impede them."

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.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Arkansas scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.


In 2013, the 89th Arkansas State Legislature was in session from January 14 through May 17.[8]

Legislators are scored on their votes on the principles the Advance Arkansas Institute seeks to promote: free markets, individual liberty and limited transparent government.
Legislators are scored on the bills that the CFC found most important.
