TexPIRG Scorecard

The Jeffersonian had an excellent post detailing how little some legislators care about the aquifer. This wasn't much of a surprise to me after working for the Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance during the general session.

TexPIRG has just released their scorecard on the house. They would have done one for the senate but there were not enough pertinent votes. Apparently the sexy cheerleading issue didn't clime up the charts as a public interest like Al Edwards would have thought.

Some interesting notes is that David Liebowitz and Joaquin Castro both scored 100%. The only two that did in the San Antonio delegation. All the other scored above 70% except my favorite person. Frank Corte scored an impressive 25% and either did not vote at all or voted against the public interest. Not to surprising really, but then again, I am only a little bias.
