Conduit for Commerce Releases Arkansas Legislative Scorecard 2023

The scorecard calculates and ranks each legislator’s voting record on economic related bills for the regular session though April 2023.
This Legislative Scorecard is an invaluable resource for Arkansans to learn how their state legislators voted during the General Assembly and compare those votes to the mission of Conduit: more economic freedom for all Arkansans. There are four factors when determining if a bill is good or bad as they relate to economic freedom to Arkansans. This Economic Freedom Filter analyzes bills that do the following: 1. Increase or decrease the size and scope of government; 2. Increase or decrease dependency on government; 3. Does it spend money we do not have, and 4. Increase or decrease transparency in government.


Our vision is to build and improve the State of Arkansas where freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society flourish. It is our mission to promote public policy that enables the free expression of entrepreneurship absent of the special interest component that often accompanies policy activity of larger businesses.


“To educate the Arkansas public and its leadership concerning government policies that will create a better life for all Arkansas citizens.”
