Senator Jeff Stone (R-La Quinta) is one of just 10 of the 40 California State Senators to receive a grade of “A” on the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association’s 2018 Legislative Report Card.

The annual report grades lawmakers on their votes on issues important to taxpayers.  It is intended as a non-partisan tool to help taxpayers hold legislators accountable.

The report card is designed to help Californians gauge how their state representatives are actually performing on taxpayer-related issues, both positive and negative.

“The people of the 28th District recently reelected me to represent them in the Senate because I promised the hard-working taxpayers of Riverside County I would stand up for them in Sacramento,” Senator Stone said. “I appreciate the high mark from the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and will continue to protect Prop. 13 and control expenses and eliminate waste in State government.”

Votes on 11 bills were used to score legislators, according to the HJTA.

More than half (76) of the 120 members of the legislature, all of them Democrats, received a grade of “F” from the taxpayers group.

Overall, 34 members, all of them Republicans, received a grade of “A”.
