The Hill has tabulated scores that Washington advocacy organizations give members of Congress, so you can check them at thehill.com rather than roaming the Internet from site to site. We cite 31 organizations, which is a fair cross section rather than a comprehensive list. Click on a lawmaker's name to see his or her page.

Can you guess whose record I pulled? 🙂
Nice to get some multi-issue perspective on our elected officials. The resource would be strengthened by a little bit of detail on where these organizations are coming from.
