RALEIGH – Because of a computational error in the original Civitas Action Conservative Effectiveness Rankings, Civitas Action has released corrected legislative rankings for North Carolina House members for 2013 votes.
The revised rankings and grades reflect corrected percentage scores. Most House members will see their scores improve by roughly three percentage points, while their ranking will remain unchanged. The top ranked house members will see their grades improved to “A” from “B+”
The revised rankings are available online at http://civitasaction.org/, and will be distributed in the July issue of the NC Capitol Connection newspaper.
We would like to commend Rep. Michael Speciale (R-Craven), who was the only legislative member to contact Civitas Action and point out the discrepancy. While bonus points can’t be awarded, it does show an attention to detail that deserves recognition.
Civitas Action regrets the error and apologizes for any confusion caused by the previously released charts.
Civitas Action is a 501(C)(4) nonprofit based in Raleigh, N.C. More information is available at www.civitasaction.org, or contact Jim Tynen at (919) 834-2099 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
