  • As with any scorecard, this tool is inherently limited. Some members may score differently than they might expect because a committee assignment requires they work primarily on issues outside the scope of CDF’s portfolio. Additionally, because the important work done by leadership in Congress is not entirely captured by our model, Members of Congress in leadership roles tend to appear near the middle of our range of grades. There are some data limitations as well. A truly comprehensive measure of action taken on behalf of children would likely include things like floor statements, committee votes, votes on amendments, public leadership, and much more. An expansion of this Report Card to include those additional data may be possible in the future.
