The LFDA has launched a new program to measure and recognize individual state legislator effectiveness.
The New Hampshire Effective Legislator Initiative will involve identifying objective criteria that determine legislator effectiveness, applying that criteria to individual legislators, and making this information available to NH citizens for appropriate recognition. The criteria include ethics, attendance, voting participation, constituent service and outreach, and do not include issue and voting positions, or political party affiliation.
"This is the first undertaking to provide New Hampshire citizens with an independent review of individual legislator effectiveness," said Greg Harville, Chairman of the LFDA Highly Effective Legislator Committee, in a press release last week.
The LFDA has already begun gathering data and will make the results available on this website later in 2014.
