The LCCR Voting Record, distributed by the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR), contains a sample of Senate and House votes from the first and second session of the 110th Congress.
The included votes reflect positions taken by every senator and representative on the legislative priorities of LCCR and its coalition members.
Based on these votes, each member of Congress earns a percentage rating for support of LCCR priorities. This rating cannot indicate the full extent of a legislator's support for or opposition to LCCR positions and represents neither endorsement nor condemnation of any member of Congress.
