The purpose of this page is to tell you the scores that California Communities United Institute (CalComUI) has given to the voting records of California's state legislators.
The legislator's tables below will tell you how each legislator voted on each bill. In all cases, CalComUI supported the bill. So, a score of "1" for a bill means the legislator voted for the bill, a score of "0" means the legislator voted against the bill, and a score of "0.5" means the legislator was absent or abstained from voting on that bill.
The legislator's scores for each bill in the following tables is assigned on the basis of a legislator's vote on the floor of the Senate or Assembly. We did not score legislator's votes in committees.
You can look at the tables to see how your Senator and Assembly Member voted on the bills. If you don't remember who they are, links near the top of each table will enable you to find out who they are.
