Revision as of 23:16, 21 February 2013

The Illinois Opportunity Project, "an independent research and public policy enterprise that promotes legislative solutions in advance of free markets and free minds," annually releases its Legislative Vote Card, grading all members in both chambers of the Illinois General Assembly on the basis of their support of "pro-growth economic policies that increase personal freedom and reign in expansive government."[1][2]

2012 report

On October 10, 2012, the Illinois Opportunity Project released its 2012 Illinois Legislative Vote Card 97th General Assembly. The Vote Card included information about 8 votes in the Illinois State Senate and 8 votes in the Illinois House of Representatives that related to "issues that impact the families of Illinois." Each legislator received a grade from A to F on the basis of "how often his or her votes protected taxpayers’ interests and promoted economic growth."[2] Although 2012 was the IOP's first year publishing the Vote Card, the Illinois Policy Institute, a pro-market think tank, published a similar vote card in 2010 and 2011.[3]
