OEA Legislative Scorecard

A legislative scorecard for each member of the Ohio General Assembly

OEA Government Relations has developed and will maintain a legislative scorecard for each member of the Ohio General Assembly.

It tracks floor votes on bills that OEA has taken a position (support/oppose) and notified legislators of this position.

Additionally, co-sponsors of bills that OEA has intense interest (either in favor or against) are also tracked.
