The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s How They Voted is its annual scorecard on how members of Congress voted on key business issues.

For this report, the Chamber chose 7 Senate votes and 14 House votes on which to grade lawmakers. For a vote to be featured in How They Voted, it must meet three criteria: first, it must be a recorded floor vote; second, the Chamber’s board of directors must have a clear policy on the issue; and third, the Chamber must have communicated its position on the issue to Congress.

The Chamber encourages you to carefully review how your elected officials voted on critical business legislation. This scorecard not only shows how they voted in the past, but it also serves as an indicator of how they will likely vote in the future.
