Taxpayers League of Minnesota

The Taxpayers League of Minnesota, a Minnesota-based taxpayer advocacy organization, releases a legislative scorecard for the Minnesota House of Representatives and Minnesota State Senate once a year.

DeKruif received a score of 71% in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 17th out of all 67 Minnesota State Senate members.[4]


DeKruif received a score of 85% in the 2011 scorecard, ranking 8th out of all 67 Minnesota State Senate members.[5]
