Clean Water Action is proud to introduce its first California Clean Water Legislative Scorecard! Clean Water Action organizes campaigns for policies that promote safe drinking water and water quality protection, environmental justice, safer chemicals, and prevent plastic pollution and waste.
This scorecard rates the voting record of California's Legislators and Governor and recognizes several Clean Water Legislators who received an "A" for their exemplary voting records in 2009 and 2010.
The following Legislators of 2009-2010 attained an exemplary score (90% or better):
*indicates a 100% voting record.
90–100% = A
80–89% = B
70–79% = C
55–69% = D
0–54% = F
If a Legislator was excused from the vote, their absence was not counted against them.
If a Legislator was present at the Capitol but did not vote, it was counted as a negative. Votes tend to take place over an extended period, so an unexcused failure to vote would be difficult to justify.
Blank cells in the scorecard represent dates in which the legislator was not a voting member of the house. There were several legislators who vacated their seat early or arrived late in the session to serve the remainder of a term.
Those missed votes were not counted against their grade.
Members not in seat throughout the session are marked with an * in the scorecard.
