Legislative Ratings can be Deceptive

Utah just finished its legislative session. Various factions are now releasing their legislative ratings.

Please do not let someone else determine the rating you give your legislator. People who create ratings have their own political philosophies and agendas that may not align with yours.

If you want to rate your representatives, you need to personally look at a sampling of bills that are important to you–and whatever substitutes may have been made before the bill was voted on– and decide how YOU would have voted. Don’t let someone else decide what your opinion is.

I believe that a statesman in a representative government analyzes a bill and its amendments and votes based on principles and conscience, rather than on the recommendations of a certain party or philosophy.
Please take all legislative ratings with a grain of salt and do your own research.
