NOTE:
Only policy committee and floor votes are included in the scorecard.

The votes of Assembly Members Blumenfield, Hueso and Torres aren't included due to their election during the year to another office.

The grade for Andy Vidak wasn't included due to his not making enough votes. He assumed office in the State Senate following a July Special Election.

Former State Senator Curren Price did not receive a grade due to his resignation from the Senate to pursue another office.

The grades for Senators Hueso and Torres, and Assembly Member Gonzalez, may be skewed due to their assuming office later in the year.

Any floor vote for the two car tax proposals, Assembly Bill 8 and Senate Bill 11 resulted in an automatic ten-point reduction.

Only the final floor votes for SB 142 and SB 254 are included, as HJTA had not taken a position on prior versions of these bills.

Only the final floor votes are included for AB 1112, due to it being a gut-and-amend proposal.

*Due to personal absence this grade may not accurately reflect Assembly Member Melendez's positive record on behalf of taxpayers.
