METHODOLOGY
As we have done in the past, ratings will be calculated based only on the votes actually taken by each member, including any clarifying statements placed in the Journals. Absences will be noted, but will not positively or negatively affect the rating.

WEIGHTING & CREDITS
In both chambers, slight weighting is given only to budget amendment and tax-related votes. Authoring and co-authoring priority legislation that receives an up-or-down vote on the floor is positively included in the rating as extra credit.
