Kuderer-D 20% 36% 34% 100% The 2018 Voting Record is one of several tools AWB members can use to evaluate how lawmakers responded to bills affecting the state’s business community this session. AWB’s Government Affairs team, in conjunction with the AWB Government Affairs Council, selects the bills and amendments to be included in the vote record. Recommendations are then made to the AWB Executive Committee, which has final approval over the record. As in previous years, this year’s record includes votes cast on final passage of bills, as well as amendments to certain bills. The narrative accompanying each issue area provides additional details on these measures. All votes are weighted equally in calculating each legislator’s voting record percentage. Finally, to give readers a better sense of each lawmaker’s voting performance over time, we’ve included their scores from the current legislative session, from 2017 and from their lifetime in the Legislature. 42 association of washington business 25 *Source: WA State Labor Council
