Your Legislators: Heroes of the Taxpayer, or Heroes of BIG Government?

September 17, 2013

The Arizona chapter of Americans for Prosperity is pleased to release its 2013 Legislative Scorecard, which is the 29th annual report card released by AFP-Arizona and the Arizona Federation of Taxpayers.  AFP-Arizona encourages activists to look at elected officials’ cumulative averages — for some Legislators, we have nine years of data, going back to 2005.  We also extend our hearty congratulations to this year’s top scorer, Senator Judy Burges of Legislative District 22 (Surprise & Sun Cities).
