A few days ago I published Who’s progressive in the Washington State Senate? — based on combined data from four scorecards.

Below is the similar ranking for Washington State House members.

Here is the list of five scorecards on which the ranking is based:

Note: if you visit the above pages now, the listed scores may differ from what’s shown below, because the groups update the scores as time goes on. Take this ranking with a grain of salt.

The combined score is based on the five component scores and the formula:

Combined Score = labor_lifetime + conservation_lifetime + racial_justice + 0.5*choice - 2*conservative.

The highest possible score is 100+100+100+50+0 = 350.  Rep. Cindy Ryu achieves 330.

Each component score is from 0 to 100, except for the pro-choice score, which is one of -100, 0, and 100. The combined scores are shown below, ordered from highest to lowest.

A zero value for Choice indicates either that insufficient data is available or that the legislator is middle-of-the-road on that issue.   I use a factor of 0.5 in the formula above because choice scores are missing for many of the reps; see NARAL’s list.

Economic justice is another dimension along which it might be useful to have a scorecard.

If you want to set your own parameters, to weigh the components differently and generate your own ranking, use the form at the end of this article.

choice=0.5, conservative=-2

Democrats are shown in blue.   Republicans are shown in red.

Higher scores are better (more progressive)
