The ACLU of Iowa has released its 2020 Legislative Report and Civil Liberties Scorecard. It analyzes votes on key civil liberties votes by legislators in the 2019 and 2020 sessions and shows their record on supporting civil liberties in Iowa.
During the 2019 and 2020 legislative sessions, the ACLU of Iowa filed formal declarations on more than 100 bills. This report and scorecard focuses on just a handful that represent a range of civil liberties issues that can serve as a good indicator of a legislator’s commitment to some of our most basic freedoms and rights. We further refined our choices by including only those bills that received a floor vote in the House or Senate. The bills cover both the 2019 and 2020 legislative sessions, which together constitute the 88th Iowa General Assembly.
To see how your federal representative and senators voted on key civil liberties issues in the 116th Congress, which started January 3, 2019, go to ACLU National’s Legislative Scorecard.
