2012 Legislative Scorecard
The 2012 Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire (RLCNH) Legislative Scorecard is the culmination of the organization’s two-year effort to track and advocate for or against bills that either advanced or retracted the common sense principles of limited government, individual liberty, personal responsibility and free markets. In its weekly RLCNH Report sent to legislators and activists, the RLCNH supported 217 bills and opposed 26 bills during the two-year session. The bills supported or opposed in the various RLCNH Reports are the basis for the Legislative Scorecard.
Clearly, the RLCNH could not identify how legislators voted on each of these bills, because some of them did not have a roll call vote. However, for each tracked bill with a roll call, the RLCNH scored all of the relevant roll call votes and divided their weight by the number of roll calls for that bill. Additionally, the RLCNH doubled the weight for each roll call vote that was featured in one of its weekly Action Alerts. In total, the RLCNH scored 223 House roll call votes and 110 Senate roll call votes and used those votes as the basis of its score for incumbents.
