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.[4]


Urie received a score of 64 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. Urie’s 64 in 2012 was tied for the 22nd highest grade among all 60 Arizona State Representatives.[4]
