Washington Rises in National Conservative Rankings

CPAC Presents 40 Lawmakers Awards for Conservative Voting

 

ALEXANDRIA, VA (August 1, 2022) — The voting of Washington’s Republican state lawmakers is trending more conservative according to a new analysis conducted by the Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA), a project of CPAC Foundation and the American Conservative Union Foundation.

 

This year, 40 state lawmakers have earned awards from CPAC for voting with the conservative position at least 80% of the time, a significant increase compared to last year where just 23 lawmakers earned awards. Additionally, the work of Republicans to reject the increasingly radical agenda of Governor Jay Inslee raised the conservative rating of the legislature from 35% to 39%. This rating places Washington as the 34th ranked conservative legislature.

 

CPAC analyzes the voting records of all 7,400 state lawmakers in America to determine the rankings. The conservative rating is calculated through CPAC’s scorecards and 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.
