2009 House Scorecard

The Fiscal Responsibility Index is a measurement of how lawmakers perform on size and role of government issues. We use exemplar votes on core budget and free enterprise issues that demonstrate legislators’ governing philosophy.

Lawmakers also received extra weighting in their score (positively) for sponsoring good legislation or (negatively) very bad legislation.

Lawmakers and their offices are notified in advance of TFR’s position on the issues rated, and often prior to votes taken on the floor.
