CPAC and ACUF Release New Rhode Island Lawmaker Scorecard Platform
Rhode Island Lawmakers Rated Across 186 Conservative Policy Areas
Alexandria, VA— The American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF) has launched a new platform to hold lawmakers accountable to conservative principles for the 50th Anniversary of ACU’s Ratings Program. The ACUF, host of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) will deploy the platform to its activist base, where tools such as the lawmaker comparison function will highlight to voters which conservative champions to rally behind.
“Our new ACU Ratings website offers an accessible and dynamic way for voters across the country to discover whether their lawmakers use their power to advance conservative principles,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “Over our 50-year history, we’ve compiled 15,000 lawmakers in our database and scored them across 186 different policy areas. For the first time, voters have access to a huge breadth of information that offers a distinct impression of the way lawmakers view the role of government in a person’s life.”
ACUF’s Ratings of Congress and Ratings of the States are initiatives of ACUF’s Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA). These ratings are designed to reflect how over 8,000 elected officials across the nation view the role of government while illustrating the differences between chambers of the legislature and revealing lawmakers’ positions across 186 policy areas that directly affect citizens.
ACU Foundation reviewed each piece of legislation voted on in both chambers of the legislature to produce average scores of each chamber as well as individual scores for each sitting member.
