U.S. Chamber Letter to Congress on New Legislative Scorecard

February 27, 2019

Earlier this year, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced a revision to our legislative scorecard. Beginning with this Congress, lawmakers will receive credit for cosponsoring Chamber-endorsed bills or refraining from cosponsoring bills the Chamber endorses against.

Our intent is to use this process to build momentum for the pro-business position on individual bills.

How you vote on legislation where the Chamber has communicated a position will continue to make up 80% of your score. The Chamber will continue to issue support and opposition letters, including key vote letters, on legislation important to the business community and our members.
