Senator Janet Nguyen Receives Highest Possible Rating for Defending California Taxpayers

Friday, November 13, 2015

The California Taxpayers Association (CalTax) released its 2015 Legislative Voting Record and Senator Janet Nguyen is proud to announce that she received the highest possible rating of 100% for her defense of California taxpayers.

The association’s annual measurement provides California taxpayers with a comprehensive guide as to how their elected representatives in the State Legislature voted on important tax and fiscal legislation. Calculations include floor votes, committee votes, legislators who authored a bill but did not have a chance to vote on it, and credit for legislators who abstained from voting on key tax bills that CalTax opposed.

“As a staunch defender of hardworking California taxpayers, I consider it a responsibility to shield Californians from legislation that would increase or impose new taxes,” said Senator Janet Nguyen. “CalTax’s annual measurement highlights my unwavering dedication to protect our residents from burdensome and frivolous tax and fiscal legislation.”

Founded in 1926, the California Taxpayers Association is the state's largest and oldest organization representing taxpayers. Established as a nonpartisan, non-profit research and advocacy association, CalTax has a dual mission to guard against unnecessary taxation and to promote government efficiency.
