2024 Manufacturing  Competitiveness LEGISLATIVE Scorecard

Transparency is essential to understanding the actions of legislators. The Manufacturing Competitiveness Legislative Scorecard  is a tool that helps inform VMA members on how the voting records of state legislators aligns with the VMA’s position on high-priority legislation impacting Virginia’s manufacturing competitiveness. The VMAPAC  utilizes the scorecard to determine the recipients of their annual legislative awards – the Industrial Strength Leadership Award  and the Manufacturing Competitiveness Certificate.

About the MFG Competitiveness Legislative Scorecard

The Virginia Manufacturers Association PAC’s annual Manufacturing Competitiveness Legislative Scorecard grades each member of the Virginia General Assembly on how their votes each legislative session align with the VMA’s position on high-priority legislation impacting Virginia’s manufacturing community.

The scorecard uses a 100-point grading scale with all scored priority bills given equal weight, determining recipients of the annual Industrial Strength Leadership Award and Manufacturing Competitiveness Certificate and as a tool for prioritizing political contributions.

This method of scoring legislators is not a blanket endorsement of any candidate or political party, but an honored designation to recognize state legislators who demonstrate exceptional support for a pro-manufacturing agenda during the legislative session. This award is given to legislators earning the top three highest scores in each chamber.
