Washington, D.C. – The Club for Growth Foundation has released its 2022 New Hampshire legislative scorecard, outlining where elected officials in New Hampshire stand on pro-growth economic policy.
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. In 2022, the Club for Growth Foundation scored 16 votes in the House and 11 votes in the Senate. These votes included opposition to new Medicaid expansions and support for increased eligibility for New Hampshire’s school choice tax credit program.
“By releasing a legislative scorecard on the state level, we aim to offer increased transparency on how legislators prioritize free-market economic solutions,” said Club for Growth Foundation President David McIntosh. “With these newly offered insights, the people of New Hampshire will be better informed on issues they value. The data shows New Hampshire state legislators have a long way to go on their free-market voting record.”
Club for Growth Foundation plans on releasing similar scorecards for state legislatures across the country.
