Scorecard released to measure pro-business votes of elected officials

By Kaylee Terracina / Policy / January 31, 2020

The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber recently released its Legislative Scorecard to help its members stay informed on how their elected officials are voting on issues that will impact businesses in Oklahoma. 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 2019 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:

  • Software/Cyber Engineering Tax Credit, HB 2759
  • Trailer Gun Bill Scissortail Park/Zoo, HB 2010
  • Criminal Justice Reform/SQ 780 Retroactivity, HB 1269
  • Alcohol Bill Negative/ SQ 792, SB 608
  • Pharmacy Benefit Managers, HB 2632
  • Legislative Office of Fiscal Transparency, SB 1
  • Medical Marijuana, HB 2612
  • Workers' Compensation, HB 2367
  • Local Development Act, SB 473
  • Teacher Pay Increase, HB 1780
  • Childhood Trauma Instruction, SB 446

The second regular session of the 57th Legislature will convene on Monday, Feb. 3. To remain engaged in the Chamber's advocacy efforts in 2020, read the 2020 Public Policy Guide, educate yourself on issues that will impact your business, and use the Chamber's Business Advocacy Center to sign up for ongoing updates and find contact information for your elected officials. 

Notes on methodology:

  • Rather than counting against a legislator's score, an absent vote was given three points toward the final score.
  • Excused votes were not counted against Rep. Dills due to a family illness.
