Scorecard Focuses On Issues That Impact You
Viante’s Board of Directors spent a great deal of time researching, analyzing and discussing what would make an ideal elected official.
First and foremost, we would like our elected officials to actually vote when they are expected to vote.
Secondly, after having community discussions and deep dives on the issues that face every New Mexican family, we have identified common ground target metrics within our focus areas. With those metrics in mind, the Board of Directors reviewed the 650+ bills introduced during the previous legislative session to narrow them down to the 15 bills that would be grounded in nonpartisan principles and data-driven solutions. Of the 15 bills, there are 5 per focus area with some bills touching multiple metrics. Each bill had the potential to get a positive ranking by Viante New Mexico if it helps New Mexico or a negative ranking if it hurts New Mexico’s position on national ranking lists that score our performance as a state.
Each legislator who had an opportunity to vote on one of the 15 Focus Bills was graded. All floor and recorded committee votes were taken into consideration. If a legislator sponsored a Focus Bill they received additional points.
15 Focus Bills
The elected officials scorecard is based solely on the bills that Viante’s diverse board identified as nonpartisan issues that impact all New Mexicans. There are 9 House Bills and 6 Senate Bills.
