Kentucky Family Legislative Scorecard

The Kentucky Family Legislative Scorecard is a new project of The Family Foundation of Kentucky and is the most comprehensive pro-family legislative scorecard in the Commonwealth. The scorecard is based on Kentucky’s 2021 & 2022 Legislative Sessions and measures how state legislators performed on core issues of family, life, religious freedom, human sexuality, and human dignity. It compiles important legislative activity, including votes and bill sponsorships.

The scorecard is a critical educational and accountability tool for Kentuckians to see where legislators stood on the values that matter to them. For the 2021-2022 Scorecard, legislators that scored 90% and above are recognized as Kentucky Family Champions, and legislators that 85% and above are recognized as Kentucky Family Advocates.

*METHODOLOGY: Scores are calculated based on votes, including any vote clarifications recorded, and sponsoring priority legislation. Votes are valued at 10 pts, bill sponsorships at 2.5 pts, and priority bill author bonuses at 10 pts. Penalties for anti-family bill/amendment sponsors are valued between 2.5 – 10 pts. Not voting or voting present is *generally* scored negatively.
