CPAC Releases Alaska Legislative Scorecard, Revealing an Ineffective Legislature.

ALEXANDRIA, VA (February 7, 2024) — CPAC Foundation’s analysis reveals Republican legislators tended to garner low scores in both the House and the Senate, averaging about 58% across both chambers. These low ratings are underscored by the lack of conservative policy items passed by the legislature. Almost all of the conservative amendments and bills scored by CPAC failed to make any meaningful progress in the 2023 session.


“The divisions within Alaska’s legislature are a major obstacle to conservative policy,” said CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp. “At their best, legislators shoved through weak pro-Second Amendment legislation. At their worst, they directly contravened the interests of taxpayers.”

CPAC recognizes the following members of the Alaska State Legislature for earning CPAC’s Award for Conservative Excellence for voting with the conservative position at least 90% of the time during the 2023 session.


Ben Carpenter (100%)

David Eastman (90%)

Frank Tomaszewski (90%)

Sarah Vance (90%)


Shelley Hughes (90%)

Robert Myers Jr. (90%)

Additionally, a few lawmakers in the Alaska State Legislature earned CPAC’s Award for Conservative Achievement for voting with the conservative position at least 80% of the time during the 2023 session. Their names are highlighted in gray in the scorecard.

The bills and amendments featured in CPAC’s 2023 Ratings of Alaska address Second Amendment Freedoms, healthcare, and the budget. These issues, coupled with our mission to protect life, liberty, property and upholding the American family, created the basis by which the CPAC Foundation rated the Alaska legislature.

The Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA), an initiative of the CPAC Foundation, is the premier organization for holding lawmakers accountable. The CLA produces the longest-running conservative congressional scorecard and our state program is the only one in the nation that scores all 8,000 lawmakers in the 50 states across every policy area.
