Legislative regular session wrapup and governor's score

By the same methodology used in the last post, we can also grade the performance of Gov. Kathleen Blanco, with one assumption. For 19 of the votes, since she signed them she clearly was in support of them, and not in support of the one she vetoed, HB 415. We must assume she supported neither of the amendments to HB 1 also listed in the index.

Therefore, Blanco scored a 42, right around the Democrat average for the Legislature. Not only can she not be called atypical of state Democrats, she can’t even be called a conservative Democrat, according to this analysis.
