ALEXANDRIA, VA (June 22, 2022) — Despite Gov. Mike Dunleavy's strong conservative leadership, Alaska's legislature continues to fall short, resulting in a last place finish among Republican states according to a new analysis conducted by the Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA), a project of CPAC Foundation and the America Conservative Union Foundation.
The report analyzed how well each of Alaska's lawmakers adhered to conservative principles in 2021, with the state's legislature earning an overall conservative rating of 46%. Alaska trails top-ranked legislatures such as Alabama (74%) and Florida (73%), and the state even falls short of the national average of 49%. The conservative rating is based on lawmaker voting across 186 policy areas ranging from cultural and life to tax, fiscal and regulatory policies.
The ratings have also been incorporated into CPAC's new Lawmaker Comparison Tool which runs head-to-head comparisons on lawmaker’s strongest and weakest policy areas.
The CLA is the first and only organization to annually publish individual ratings for all 8,000 federal and state lawmakers in America. The CLA is also home to the nation’s most comprehensive conservative policy database containing over 17,500 detailed bill analyses which span 50 years of Congress and all 50 state legislatures.
