Best & Worst of the General Assembly
The 2012 edition of The Best and Worst of the General Assembly, our annual guide to the legislature’s accomplishments and misadventures, is here. In it, we highlight the year’s most important legislation and give each bill a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down.” We base our judgments on a single criterion – whether or not the bill advanced freedom – and we explain our reasons in plain English.
In this year’s electronic version, we’ve added an important new feature. For any bill that received a roll-call vote, we’ve included a link to the final vote tally, allowing you to find where your lawmaker came down on any roll-call vote.
