The 2012 Illinois Legislative Vote Card allows our members and the public an impartial look at how their legislators voted on these and other important issues. The Illinois Opportunity Project has selected 16 key votes (8 in the Senate and 8 in the House) on issues that impact the families of Illinois. Each legislator received a “grade” based on how often his or her votes protected taxpayers’ interests and promoted economic growth.

Pat Hughes was the IOP spokesman for this project and did interviews with several radio stations around the state regarding the Vote Card. Listen to those interviews below.
