Legislative Voting Record

There is, at this time (2021), a disconnect between the opinions of voters on certain bills, and the way some (primarily Republican) legislators are voting. On this page, we will attempt to keep you up-to-date on some of the more interesting pieces of legislation of 2021 and beyond, as well as the votes of your local representatives. Where more than one version has passed a chamber, the tally will be listed only for the final version. State, as well as federal legislation will be included.
