Nebraska Taxpayers for Freedom has released its annual report on the conservative voting of members of the Nebraska Unicameral during the 2015 session. NTF rates senators based on their fiscal responsibility, intervention into the private lives of Nebraska citizens, and positions on legislation dealing with law and order.
NTF rates state senators based on the most conservative voting record and the least. NTF tracked 132 bills in the 2015 session. Starting at a base of zero, senators received .76% credit for each good vote.
In first place was State Senator Bill Kintner (District 2), followed by State Senator Mike Groene (Dist. 42). Placing lowest was State Senator Rick Kolowski (District 31).
NTF president Doug Kagan explained that “the executive committee of the Legislature refuses to place all the annotated voting records of state senators on the official Unicameral Internet web site, despite the fact that it is paid for by Nebraska taxpayers. Because legislators apparently do not want overtaxed and over-regulated Nebraskans to see transparent voting records of state senators, NTF annually places a comprehensive voting record on its web site: http://www.netaxpayers.org. The scores for this most recent session reinforce the necessity for Nebraska citizens to press state senators for future tax and spending limits and their duty to vote on all legislative bills presented.”
