Centennial Institute announces 2020 Faith, Family & Freedom Awards, releases its annual Legislative Scorecard
LAKEWOOD, Col. — Centennial Institute, Colorado Christian University’s public policy think tank, has released its annual Colorado Legislative Scorecard. The 2020 Scorecard tracked legislation related to tax cuts, limited government, compassion for the poor, sanctity of life, traditional family values, original intent of the Constitution, free markets, reducing drug use and other important social issues.
“Only 32 out of 100 legislators at the Colorado Capitol supported conservative solutions to the challenges facing our state,” said Jeff Hunt, director of the Centennial Institute. “We are grateful for these stalwarts of conservatism. We hope the other 68 legislators will consider the importance of faith, family and freedom in solving our state’s challenges. It’s clear the leftist agenda isn’t working in Colorado.”
Centennial Institute began its Legislative Scorecard initiative in 2019 to assess how well state legislators are serving Coloradans. The Scorecard summarizes each bill and gives it a score, offering a succinct assessment of legislators and the actions they have taken in the past year.
Legislators who receive a score of eight or higher are honored at the Western Conservative Summit with the Faith, Family and Freedom Award, given to legislators who have advocated for conservative policies at the Colorado Capitol. Last year, 30 legislators received awards. This year, 32 representatives and senators received awards.
