189th Senate Scorecard - 2015-2016

189th_Scorecard_-_Senate_-_2015-16.jpg

Every two years, you elect your State Senator. But what happens after that? Where do they stand on the issues of the day on Beacon Hill? How do they vote on the bills that come before the House of Representatives during the two-year legislative session?

Every year, Progressive Massachusetts puts together a scorecard of Legislators' votes, zeroing in on those roll call votes that often can show the distinction between a progressive legislator, and everyone else.

With the Progressive Mass scorecard, you can see how your State Senator votes, helping the public understand where he or she stands on specific policies, and giving you the information to better advocate for the issues that you care about, and even influence your vote in election years.

The Senate Scorecard for the first year of the 2015-2016 legislative session is below (looking for the House Scorecard? It's here).

Raise Up 2015: A Grassroots Win! (And Next Steps in 2016)

You worked so hard to gather signatures to put the Fair Share Amendment on the ballot.

And I have a terrific update for you --
