New Website Grades Florida Lawmakers

October 6th, 2017 by Jake Stofan
FloridaReportCard.com is a new tool for voters to learn about their State Senator and Representatives voting record on issues.
Sponsored by Progress Florida, the groups first report tracks how legislators voted on concealed weapons, environmental funding, charter school expansion and more.
Damien Filer says the web site is a way for Floridians to help influence public policy in a way that puts People First.
“In essence what this is is a resource for Floridians to be able to go to the website and take a look and see where every single Legislator, leadership, their local delegation, their local state representative and senator, where they voted on a myriad of issues that are important to Floridians and see so they can match up the rhetoric with the reality,” said Filer.
The first report card produced 31 A’s and 101 F’s out of a total of 158 lawmakers.
