Chamber scorecard highlights elected officials’ votes

By Chamber staff / Policy / October 18, 2018

To keep its members informed on the issues at the State Capitol, the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber releases its Legislative Scorecard every year. The scorecard includes information prepared by the statewide Research Institute for Economic Development (RIED) to identify elected officials’ votes on issues important to the business community. Alongside the RIED scores, the Chamber also assigns a score to legislators based on priority issues advocated by the Chamber during the legislative session.

The following charts represent voting records for State House and Senate elected officials during the 2018 legislative session. Scores are based on issues identified by the Chamber and RIED, including, but not limited to, elected officials’ votes on the following bills:

  • Step Up Plan (HB 1033XX)
  • Constitutional Carry (SB 1212)
  • Quality Events Act (SB 1252)
  • Hotel/Motel Tax Repeal (HB 1012XX)
  • Small Employer QJA (SB923)

Note on methodology:

  • NG = No grade   
  • I = Incomplete
  • Officials who will no longer be in office in 2019 were removed from this list
  • Rather than counting against a legislator’s score, an absent vote was given three points towards the final score
  • Casey Murdock was sworn in as State Senator on February 26, 2018; his vote total reflects his combined House and Senate votes
  • Five bonus points were awarded if elected officials carried the Governor’s Criminal Justice Reform bills
  • A yes vote on SB 1212 (Constitutional Carry) was against the Chamber’s position, therefore, 10 points were deducted from a legislator’s score
  • An excused vote on SB 1212 (Constitutional Carry) is equivalent to a no vote in support of the Chamber’s position; therefore, 10 points were added to a legislator’s score
  • Representative Brad Boles won the special election for HD 51 (Biggs’ seat), and was sworn in on March 16, 2018. Therefore, he was not present as a legislator for several votes, but was scored on votes he was present
  • Five bonus points awarded for allowing Step Up, Criminal Justice Reform Bills and other Chamber priorities to be heard in House
