(Before It's News)

Less than one day after Gov. Greg Abbott decided to try and take out Rep. Sarah Davis, she was one of only 10 Texas legislators to receive a ‘Champion of Free Enterprise’ designation on the Texas Association of Business scorecard.

Cindy Burkett (R-Sunnyvale) Oscar Longoria (D-Mission)
Sarah Davis (R-Houston) Richard Peña Raymond (D-Laredo)
Gary Elkins (R-Houston) Hugh Shine (R-Temple)
Dan Huberty (R-Houston) Jason Villalba (R-Dallas)
Linda Koop (R-Dallas) Paul Workman (R-Dallas)

Since I happen to live in the Houston area, it’s good to see three Houston area reps on that list. Two other area reps, Jim Murphy and Kevin Roberts, came close with scores of 88. The moral warriors didn’t do so well on this scorecard.

You will notice that not a single senator received the highest designation, which is no surprise if you followed along during the session. The TAB was constantly at odds with the Governor and Lt. Governor over social issues.

Here is the list of bills that the TAB used for their scorecard.
