Dec. 12, 2017: Pro-consumer group CALPIRG gives Sen. Holly J. Mitchell perfect 100-percent rating on key 2017 votes

December 12, 2017

SACRAMENTO – The California Public Interest Group, or CALPIRG, a statewide public interest group, today announced it has given Sen. Holly J. Mitchell, D-Los Angeles, a perfect 100-percent score for her votes on a dozen consumer-interest bills.

“When consumers are cheated, when our public health is threatened, or powerful interests have more say than ordinary people, our job is to stand up for the public interest,” CALPIRG Executive Director Emily Rusch said. “We’re funded by tens of thousands of supporters, from across the political spectrum, which allows us to be independent and focus on doing what’s best for the public. This scorecard grades legislators on their votes on a dozen significant legislative bills CALPIRG supported this year.”
