PAAIA Releases Congressional Scorecard for the 110th Congress
October 30, 2008, Washington, D.C. – To inform the public as to where members of Congress stand on issues of important to the Iranian American community, the Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA) has compiled a scorecard that outlines how they have voted on legislation pertaining to those issues during the 110th Congress.
The primary purpose of the Scorecard is to ensure that Iranian Americans are informed about the voting records of their members of Congress. In addition, the Scorecard ensures that members of Congress are aware that their votes and positions on issues of importance to the Iranian American community are analyzed and made public. This scorecard examines votes and positions only during the years of 2007 and 2008, and does not in any way reflect each individual’s voting record in the past. The scorecard is merely an informational tool used by PAAIA and its affiliated organizations and does not indicate our approval or disapproval of the Members of Congress in question.
