Legislative Report Card
Find Out What Grade Your Legislator Earned
Each year the Florida Chamber releases actual grades earned by all 160 members of the Florida Legislature. The Florida Chamber’s Legislative Report Card is an opportunity to recognize members of the Florida Legislature who placed making Florida more competitive through private-sector job creation above special interest attempts to protect the status quo.
“The Florida Chamber’s Legislative Report Card lets families, small businesses, taxpayers and voters know if legislators voted in favor of job creation and a stronger economy, and provides them with the valuable information as they begin to consider the 2016 election cycle.”
DAVID HART, Executive Vice President, Florida Chamber of Commerce
