Humane Scorecard 2009

The Humane Society Legislative Fund has released its 2009 Humane Scorecard.  The Scorecard ranks members of Congress on their support or votes on important animal legislation.  Only Senator Nelson was ranked given the changeover between Senator Martinez and Senator Lemieux.  Nelson ranked a disappointing 33%.  On house side, Representative Wasserman-Schultz was the only house member to rank a perfect 100%, although representative Klein and former representative Wexler came in at 92% with no anti-animal positions.  Representative Miller ranked the lowest with a 0% and 8 anti-animal positions.

The HSLF blog posted some additional facts about the scorecard here and encourages people to communicate with their legislators about the scores.
