New York Rated 7th Most Liberal – Plunges in Conservative Rankings

New CPAC 50 State Analysis Finds NY Legislature Trending Even Further Left

 

ALEXANDRIA, VA (June 27, 2022) —The voting of New York state lawmakers has become significantly more liberal according to a new analysis conducted by the Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA), a project of CPAC Foundation and the American Conservative Union Foundation.

 

In CPAC’s analysis of all 7,400 state lawmakers in America, New York’s legislature earned a conservative rating of a mere 26% last year, compared to a 28% rating in 2020. The state tied Maryland (26%) as 7th most liberal, trailing only California (25%), Oregon (24%), Rhode Island (24%), Hawaii (23%), Vermont (20%) and Massachusetts (16%).
 
Of the state’s 213 lawmakers only 13 members of the legislature earned awards from CPAC for voting with the conservative position at least 80% of the time. The conservative rating is based on lawmaker voting across 186 policy areas ranging from cultural and life issues to tax, fiscal and regulatory policies.

The ratings have also been incorporated into CPAC’s new Lawmaker Comparison Tool which runs head-to-head comparisons on lawmaker’s strongest and weakest policy areas.

The CLA is the first and only organization to annually publish individual ratings for all 8,000 federal and state lawmakers in America. The CLA is also home to the nation’s most comprehensive conservative policy database containing over 17,500 detailed bill analyses which span 50 years of Congress and all 50 state legislatures.
