Learn more about the 2009 Legislative Session.
|Each year, Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California (PPAC) tracks and advocates on dozens of legislative measures before the California Legislature that impact women's health care services and the lives of millions of Californians. Our elected officials make decisions about access to comprehensive reproductive health care, sexual health education and much more through the votes they cast on these bills.
The Purpose of Scorecards
The purpose of the scorecard is to help the public hold elected officials accountable for their votes and positions on the issues. Creating the annual scorecard is a collaborative effort between PPAC and local Planned Parenthood affiliates.
How Legislators are Scored
PPAC monitors all bills that would affect reproductive health care in California and selects bills which it rates with a score. Legislators' scores are based on their floor votes on these key pieces of legislation. Before a vote is taken on each bill, PPAC sends letters to the legislators notifying them that their vote may be scored. Final scoring is on a percentage basis.
