2007-2008 Legislative Scorecard



MASSPIRG is the state’s leading advocate for the public interest. Each legislative session, we push for passage of a range of public interest bills and work to defeat measures that will harm the environment or consumers. This report indicates how senators and representatives stand on some important public interest bills. Unfortunately, the legislature only votes on a fraction of bills filed every session, and many important issues are left languishing. This report includes roll call votes when available.

Each legislator in this report earns a score. The score represents the number of times the lawmaker voted in support of the public interest position combined with the number of our three priority issues they cosponsored or endorsed. The Senate has 5 items which we scored and the House has 7.
