The annual Congressional Scorecard is one of the many citizenship tools used by U.S. PIRG and the state PIRGs to preserve the environment, protect consumers, and revitalize participation in our democratic process.
Going door-to-door in cities and towns across the country, U.S. PIRG and state PIRG staff are distributing this year’s Scorecard to more than 1.5 million households. The Scorecard tells citizens how their elected officials voted on public interest issues ranging from the rollback of decades of environmental and public health laws to the cutting of polluter pork subsidies to the enactment of campaign finance reforms.
State PIRGs are nonprofit, nonpartisan public interest advocacy groups. U.S. PIRG is the national lobbying office for state PIRGs across the country. With a combination of professional expertise, citizen power, and dogged persistence, the state PIRGs and U.S. PIRG work to preserve the environment, protect consumers, and promote good government.
All votes were cast in the 107th Congress between January 2001 and April 2002.
Past years' scorecards: 2001 | 2000 | 1999 | 1998 | 1997 | 1996
