2009-2010 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 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.

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. The Senate has seven items which we scored, and the House has six.
