Freedom Index results released, Rep. John Block takes top prize, Rep. Pettigrew takes 2nd

Throughout the 2023 New Mexico legislative session we have been tracking the Legislature’s votes on various economic, education, and constitutional issues from a pro-freedom perspective via our Freedom Index. Bills receive scores anywhere from -8 to +8 depending on the overall impact of the legislation. Legislators are assigned points as floor votes are taken. Alas, we cannot rate committee votes.

You can find a spreadsheet detailing all the votes included in the index here.

The best overall voting records were compiled by Alamogordo area freshman legislator Rep. John Block. Block was followed by Rep. Randall Pettigrew who represents parts of Hobbs and surrounding areas.

Kudos and thank you to Rep. Block and Rep. Pettigrew for their strong leadership. We’ll discuss the Senate and have more scores in a subsequent post.
