Brewer's score is 37.9 on a scale of 0-100
which puts her below almost all of the legislators and clearly into the RINO category.
Although the budget bills significantly lowered Brewer's score, even not including those bills would have given her only a 56.3 score which would still put her below most of the legislators and label her performance as being a "Progressive" Republican.
This highlights the importance of looking at what politicians actually do with regard to legislation rather than just listening to what they say.
In some respects, this low score is more generous than Brewer deserves when considering how she manipulated the budget process by calling a special session to bypass Republican legislative leadership. She also did the "right" thing for the wrong reason at times. For example, she vetoed a bill to regulate music therapists because it did not have as much regulation as she wanted. While she improved her score with the veto, she sent a message that more rather than less economic regulation is what she considers good.
Here are the details of the votes we rated Brewer on.
The ACC considers it good when the Governor signs bills we give a positive weight and vetoes bills we give a negative weight. We think it is bad when the Governor signs bills we weight negatively or vetoes bills we weight positively.
These bills are sorted by the ACC View (showing Bad and then Good) and then by Session and Bill Number.
Brewer's score is based solely on her decisions to sign or veto bills that were included in the evaluation.
