Campaign themes


Levine's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Secondhand Smoke

  • Excerpt: "Secondhand smoke kills. That's why our schools, workplaces, businesses and public facilities are smoke free environments. But smoke still looms where people should feel safest: in their homes. Current laws leave families and others that live in multi-unit housing vulnerable to the habits of their neighbors."

Plastic Bags

  • Excerpt: "Its time to go beyond plastic bags. Plastic bags last for 1,000 years in our landfills, litter our landscapes and communities, and harm fish and mammals each year. Many communities have taken action to curtail the use of plastic bags. It's time for California to do the same by restricting the use of single-use plastic bags at larger stores."

Fracking Oversight

  • Excerpt: "Hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," is a process in which water and chemicals are injected underground at high pressure to release oil and natural gas from wells. The use of fracking is increasing in California, but the state currently lacks a regulatory framework for this potentially harmful practice. Marc wants to strengthen permitting rules to help ensure that nearby residents, land and water are protected from contamination."


Levine's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Fully fund our schools
  • Help to create jobs
  • Fix state budget problems so we’re not back in the same mess every year

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 California scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
