Montana Committee Assignments, 2013
Business and Labor
Federal Relations, Energy, and Telecommunications
Local Government


Campaign themes


Moore says the following on his website:[1]

With the uncertainty of the national and international economies, it would be foolish to spend Montana’s surplus for short-term political gain. I believe we need to continue to focus on reforming property and income taxes. We need to eliminate waste in state and local government so that the needs of citizens are served first, rather than the desires of those who govern.

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 Texas 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.
