The NASW IL / PAC Legislative Scorecard is a source for Illinois social workers to learn how their legislators voted on key issues that impacted the social work profession and their clients. The NASW IL / PAC releases its scorecard at the end of each year to ensure that members know legislator’s records on key economic and social work–related public policy issues, and to also recognize lawmakers who understand the importance of a strong and funded social service industry.

As you can see, the 2013 Legislative Scorecard shows numerous perfect scores and reflects the success that the NASW IL PAC and its members received in persuading lawmakers to vote in the interests of the social work profession and our clients. However, budget constraints and current legislation being presented will require continued diligence and participation from the social work profession.
