American Energy Alliance 2022 Senate Scorecard

This week the American Energy Alliance released its American Energy Scorecard for the United States Senate.  The AEA scorecard scores voting and co-sponsorship decisions on legislation affecting energy and environmental policy, educating voters on how their senators vote and holding members accountable for those decisions.  This year’s Senate scorecard compiles 28 votes and 1 co-sponsorship decision from the full 6-year terms of the Senators up for reelection in 2022. Six Senators achieved better than a 90% score over their full term of office.

The American Energy Scorecard is guided by the following core principles:

  • Promoting affordable, abundant, and reliable energy
  • Expanding economic opportunity and prosperity, particularly for working families and those on fixed incomes
  • Giving Americans, not Washington bureaucrats, the power to make their own energy choices
  • Encouraging private sector innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Advancing market-oriented energy and environment policies
  • Reducing the role of government in energy markets
  • Eliminating the subsidies, mandates, and special interest giveaways that lead to higher energy costs

All members are notified in advance that AEA plans to score an upcoming vote. The scored votes in the last three Congresses cover a range of energy and environmental policy issues.

One co-sponsorship decision was scored, in this case scored against (meaning not cosponsoring scored positively). This was the resolution supporting a Green New Deal, which sought to control every aspect of the economy through controlling energy decisions.
