“The Legislative Scorecard is an opportunity to highlight our policy champions and reveal lawmakers who voted against providing more freedom and opportunity to South Carolinians.”
COLUMBIA, SC – Americans for Prosperity – South Carolina (AFP-SC) today released its 2022 Legislative Scorecard, highlighting state lawmakers’ votes during the past legislative session.
The full Scorecard downloadable PDF is available here. The digital version of the scorecard can be found by visiting SCScorecard.com. AFP-SC will follow up the release with events and digital and direct mail promoting the scorecard. Mail will be dropped in support of State Senators Wes Climer and Tom Davis, who both received scores of above 100%, giving them an A++ score, as well as Senate Majority Leader Shane Massey, who led the way in bringing transformative policy to the Senate floor for a vote.
AFP-SC State Director Candace Carroll released the following statement:
“The Legislative Scorecard is an opportunity to highlight our policy champions and reveal lawmakers who voted against providing more freedom and opportunity to South Carolinians. The Senate led the way this past session, passing reforms to increase access to health care and provide suffering patients with medicinal cannabis. We were disappointed to see the House then fumble and fail to pass these crucial bills. Clearly, the legislature has more work to do. Americans for Prosperity is committed to getting these reforms and others across the finish line to ensure the Palmetto State is the best place to live, work, and raise a family.”
What our Policy Champions have to say:
“Americans for Prosperity champions individual liberty and opposes government actions that prevent people from realizing their potential — unsustainable government spending and debt, a rigged economy that picks winners and losers, overly burdensome regulatory processes that stifle innovation, and more. Receiving its highest legislative score is an honor and confirms I afford individual liberty pride of place when deciding how to cast my votes at the State House.” – State Senator Tom Davis
“The best way to lower prices and improve outcomes is getting government out of the way and empowering the private sector to compete and innovate. That’s what we’re trying to accomplish in Columbia in order to lower health care costs, improve educational outcomes, cut utility prices, and reduce the cost of government by cutting taxes and spending. AFP is an invaluable ally in that cause and I’m grateful for both their recognition and partnership along the way.” – State Senator Wes Climer
The SC scorecard was based on votes on the following 14 bills:
