Rep. Goodlatte Moves into Passing Territory


Just had a call from Rep. Bob Goodlatte’s office–he does provide two of the items we asked about (bills he’s sponsored or co-sponsored, and his statements from the Congressional Record (which aren’t all in one place–here’s one from the same page as the text of the first bill he sponsored this session). I’ve adjusted his score–Goodlatte now gets a passing grade of 40.

I think the more important headline is that it seems like some members of Congress are taking this seriously on the basis of our post and a story that Paul Singer wrote in Roll Call, which is certainly well-read by members and their staffs (sorry, it looks like the full text requires a subscription).
