Louisiana Family Forum releases annual legislative scorecard
Louisiana Family Forum, which describes itself as "an organization committed to defending faith, freedom and the traditional family," has given a pair of Capital Region state senators and a handful of representatives top ranking on its 2012 Legislative Scorecard, also called its "Family Security Advisory." Sens. Bodi White, R-Central, and Rick Ward, D-Port Allen, are among 12 senators who scored 100% in the LFF's assessment. Meanwhile, 23 representatives also got top ranking, including local Republicans Valarie Hodges of Watson; J. Rogers Pope of Denham Springs; Sherman Mack of Livingston; Eddie Lambert and John Berthelot of Gonzales; and Erich Ponti, Hunter Greene, Stephen Carter, Franklin Foil and Clifton Richardson, all of Baton Rouge. The 35 lawmakers will be given an Outstanding Family Advocate award at the LFF's annual banquet next month in Baton Rouge. The LFF graded all state lawmakers based on their votes on 10 bills from this year's session.
