The Goldwater Institute releases its "Legislative Report Card" annually for all Arizona legislators. This report card tracks how legislators voted on key votes and assigns them a letter grade based on how closely their votes agree with the Institute's positions. The primary values emphasized in the ratings are whether votes expand or restrict liberty.[7]

2012

Gray received a score of 62 out of 100 in the 2012 report card for a grade of B- according to the Goldwater Institute’s grading scale. This score was the same as her score on the 2011 report card. Gray’s 62 in 2012 was tied for the 16th highest grade among all 30 Arizona State Senators.[7]
