Republicans, Democrats see ratings drop in legislative scorecard



(The Center Square) – Both Republicans and Democrats in the Wyoming State Legislature saw their legislative scores drop in a rating report by a conservative advocacy group.

Club for Growth Foundation’s 2023 Wyoming State Economic Scorecard examined every legislator’s vote related to pro-growth policies and then calculated an Economic Growth Score on a scale of 0 to the high score of 100. More than 800 floor votes in the House and Senate were studied and measured, including topics such as electoral safeguards and opposition to supplemental COVID-19 funding that dispersed federal tax dollars.

“Through its state level economic scorecard, the Club for Growth Foundation provides the people of Wyoming, and Americans across the country, a firsthand look into where their representatives stand on economic issues,” Club for Growth Foundation President David McIntosh told The Center Square. “The Foundation’s central goal is to educate the public on the virtues of free markets and limited government. By offering a transparent look into these issues, Wyomingites will know how their legislators voted on significant economic liberty and fiscal responsibility policy issues.”

In the Wyoming Senate, the average score was 49% for Republican compared to 8% for Democrats. The lowest-rated Republican was Sen. Wendy Schuler, Uinta County, at 12%. Sen. Chris Rothfuss, Albany County, had the lowest-rated Democrat score at 3%.

In the House, the average Republican score was 49% compared to 2% from Democrats. Rep. John Bear, Campbell County, had the highest-rated Republican score of 100%. The highest-rated Democrat score went to Rep. Karlee Provenza, Albany County, at 9%.

In its 2022 scorecard, the average Republican scored at 62%, up from 52% in 2021. The average Democrat score was 26%, up from 20% in 2021.
