Sacramento - The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association issued its 2009 Legislative Report Card earlier this week, and California State Senator Tony Strickland (R-Simi Valley) scored first among senators with a score of 97.6 percent.

The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association ranks legislators based on how they cast votes on 35 different bills.

"I am honored to have received the top score in the State Senate by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association," Strickland said. "It comes to no surprise that the majority of my colleagues received 'F' grades because they treat California taxpayers like their personal ATM machine."

Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, commented: "The fact that Tony received a solid A grade and had one of the highest scores in the Legislature should come as no surprise. He has always been a staunch defender of taxpayers and we count on him to advance a fiscally responsible agenda that California so desperately needs."

Listed below is the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association 2009 State Senate Report Card.
