WASHINGTON, DC – The Club for Growth Foundation has released its 2021 Montana economic scorecard, highlighting the voting record of each member of the state legislature to bring greater transparency to their voting record on pro-growth economic issues.
The Foundation conducted a comprehensive examination of each lawmaker’s record on votes related to pro-growth policies and computed an Economic Growth Score on a scale of 0 to 100. A score of 100 indicates the highest support for pro-growth policies.
“Through the release of this scorecard series, Club for Growth Foundation allows citizens to see where their state representatives stand on free-market policies,” said Club for Growth Foundation President David McIntosh. “We believe that these scorecards will help educate Montanans and allow them to be better informed on key economic issues.”
Club for Growth Foundation plans on releasing similar state scorecards for legislatures across the country.
