Goldwater Institute Lauds Burton-Cahill, Ableser, and Schapira*

* OK, not really. :))

The anti-government "think tank" has issued its report card for the 2008 session of the Arizona Legislature, and all three of D17's legislators earned grades of "F."

With a final grade of 31 (F), Senator Meg Burton-Cahill tied for the lowest grade in the State Senate with Senators Debbie McCune-Davis and Rebecca Rios.

Over in the House, State Representatives Ed Ableser and David Schapira slacked off the pace set by their colleague in the Senate and earned a grade of only 36. Still an "F" by Goldwater Institute standards, but one that leaves room for improvement.

On that note, two of the highest..errr..."lowest" scoring legislators, Theresa Ullmer and Tom Prezelski, are not returning to the lege next year, so there will be an opportunity for the D17 contingent to move up down in the Institute's rankings. :)

And before you ask about the title of this post, any time an anti-government group such as the Goldwater Institute doesn't like certain elected representatives, it probably just means that those representatives are doing the jobs that they were hired to do.

How much of their job includes ensuring that people convicted of drug crimes are confined in camps for many years?
