                                                  Introduction
It is important to periodically evaluate our ability to communicate our position on issues with the state legislature.
The legislative voting record on these issues is one way to measure our effectiveness in communicating our
position. The following is a list of legislative voting records from the second regular session (2004) for issues on
which the Game and Fish Commission has taken a formal position. A brief summary of the bills/issues is also
included.


                             Key to the Tables on the Following Pages
S = Legislator signed on as a sponsor of the particular legislation.
    2 points per legislation sponsored added to weighted score

+ = Voted with the formal position taken by the Commission.
- = Voted against the formal position taken by the Commission.
* = No vote was taken in Committee or on the floor, or the member was absent when the vote was taken.
Because not all bills impact the department to an equal degree, the bills are assigned a level of impact in order to
distinguish between more important bills in which that the department sought more support. The votes on all bills
are weighted in accordance with the degree of impact on the department. The weighting scale is as follows:
Bill of NORMAL Impact:            Vote in favor of Game and Fish +1          Against Game and Fish position -1
Bill of MEDIUM Impact:            Vote in favor of Game and Fish +3          Against Game and Fish position -3
Bill of HIGH Impact:              Vote in favor of Game and Fish +6          Against Game and Fish position -6

A bill sponsor will receive 2 additional points per bill sponsorship

Total Points = Total number of weighted points versus the total number of weighted points possible (excluding
points possible from bill sponsorship) if the legislator were to consistently vote in favor of the department.

% of Points Agreed = Agreement between legislators voting record and Commission positions on legislation.
This number is derived by dividing the weighted points earned by the legislator by the amount of weighted points
possible out of the votes in which the legislator participated.

Agreement/Actions = Number of times legislators voted in agreement with the Commission’s position versus
the number of times legislators actually voted on Department policy.

% Agreement = Agreement between legislators voting record and Commission positions on the issues. This
number is derived by dividing the number of a legislator’s actions (votes and/or sponsorship) that agrees with the
Commission position by the total number of actions taken by the legislator on these issues.

Note: This scorecard is not intended to be used in judging legislators, but rather, our ability to effectively
communicate our position on issues. Also, these calculations do not take into account work that goes on behind
the scene on legislative issues (i.e., helping a bill be heard and debated).

Garcia, Harper, Jarrett, Martin, Miranda, Tibshraeny, Waring, Weiers; Representatives Hanson, Pearce,
Quelland) A definition of "racketeering" in the criminal code would have been expanded to include "animal or
ecological terrorism," defined as any felony, completed or preparatory, involving damage or injury with intent to
obstruct an "animal activity", defined as any activity using animals or animal parts, including hunting, food
processing and medical research. GOVERNOR'S VETO MESSAGE said the definitions are over-broad and that
Attorney General Goddard's view had been sought and that he had concluded first that existing law provides
adequate protection against acts of eco-terrorism and second that "sweeping" provisions of S1081 would result in
unintended consequences and would threaten protected speech. Vetoed by Governor Napolitano 5/13/04

    agreement

*H2307 as written was officially opposed by the Game and Fish department, however Senators agreed to change the bill in the next committee in
a way that Game and Fish favored, thus votes in favor of the bill (although identified as against the department’s position) are in fact interpreted
to be in agreement with the department’s position.
