In a profile by the Missoulian, Steenberg said he opposed repealing the Affordable Care Act, and "would support expanding Medicaid" in the state. While positive on renewable energy and incentives to produce it, he was more skeptical of traditional energy sources, saying that "environmental, social and economic impacts that should be examined," and that "oil-and-gas development [should] not come at the expense of our natural resource environment or cultural treasures."[1]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Montana

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.
