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.[1]

2012

Stevens received a score of 68 out of 100 in the 2012 report card for a grade of B+ according to the Goldwater Institute’s grading scale. This score was 1 lower than his score on the 2011 report card. Stevens’s 68 in 2012 was tied for the 12th highest grade among all 60 Arizona State Representatives.[1]
