Political Courage test

Davis did not provide answers to the California State Legislative Election 2008 Political Courage Test. The test provides voters with how a candidate would vote on the issues if elected.[2]

Legislative scorecard

Capitol Weekly, California's major weekly periodical covering the state legislature, publishes an annual legislative scorecard to pin down the political or ideological leanings of every member of the legislature based on how they voted on an assortment of bills in the most recent legislative session. The 2009 scores were based on votes on 19 bills, but did not include how legislators voted on the Proposition 1A (2009). On the scorecard, "100" is a perfect liberal score and "0" is a perfect conservative score. [3],[4]

On the 2009 Capitol Weekly legislative scorecard, Davis ranked as a 79.[5]

Davis's sponsored legislation includes:

  • AB 87 - Single-use carryout bags: environmental effect
  • AB 290 - Neighborhood Stabilization Program grants
  • AB 632 - Internet-based social networking: privacy

For details and a full listing of sponsored bills, see the House site.
