About Score Card

How Conservative are your members of congress?

The Heritage Action Scorecard measures votes, co-sponsorships, and other legislative activity to show how conservative Members of Congress are.

Identify Issues

Heritage Action identifies upcoming legislative fights and the Heritage Foundation outlines the conservative policy positions. Key votes encompass the full spectrum of conservatism, policies large and small.

Notify Members of Congress

As we announce Key votes, the Heritage Action team alerts Members of Congress, informs conservative activists across the country, and reaches out to the media to ensure reporters cover our position

Update Scores

We update the scorecard weekly when Congress is in session, ensuring the scores reflect the latest activity. Updated scores help conservatives hold their Members of Congress accountable.


Congressional Sentinels

Members of Congress scoring over 90% for a given Congress and who maintain a lifetime average over 80% are awarded Sentinel status for the given Congress. Sentinel status is awarded after the given Congress concludes and is indicated by a Sentinel badge on the Member of Congress's scorecard page.
