Empower Texans Fiscal Responsibility Index

Empower Texans produces the Fiscal Responsibility Index as "a measurement of how lawmakers perform on size and role of government issues." The index uses "exemplar votes on core budget and free enterprise issues that demonstrate legislators' governing philosophy."[4] Legislators are graded along a standard grading scale, receiving grades A through F based on their performance during the legislative session.


Eric Johnson received a grade of F on the 2011 Fiscal Responsibility Index.
