State Rep. Steve Green, R-Fosston, matched the highest score on the Legislative Evaluation Assembly of Minnesota’s 2021 scorecard and was one of select few legislators to recently earn “honoree” distinction.

The LEA reports it rated the votes of all 201 legislators on 16 selected bills. Omnibus bills on taxes, agriculture, education, energy, health and human services, and housing were included, the LEA said, along with others addressing the governor’s emergency powers, voter ID, energy policy and price gouging.

Green was one of four legislators atop the LEA ratings with a score of 92.

“It is humbling to receive this recognition as I continue to do my best to represent the people in our district,” Green said. “This award is a tribute to the people in our area because my record reflects their priorities. I am honored to be their voice at the Capitol.”

The full report can be downloaded from the LEA website at http://lea-mn.org . The LEA says it is a non-partisan and non-profit organization, and bases its evaluation on principles that provide a basis for a constitutionally limited government established to sustain life, liberty, justice, property rights and free enterprise.
