Sunlight Foundation gives Carson high marks


Concord, NH – The Sunlight Foundation, a nonpartisan nonprofit pushing for open government, ranks Senator Sharon Carson (R-Londonderry) as the most effective Senator in New Hampshire. The ranking is based on Carson’s record of sponsoring successful legislation during the 2013-14 Session.


Carson sponsored 34 bills that were approved by the Senate, 17 of which also won approval from the Democratically-controlled New Hampshire House. Eleven of Carson’s bills were signed into law over the last two years. The Sunlight Foundation found that Carson had the most success getting her proposals through the legislative process.


“Our goal as Legislators should be to find ways to improve New Hampshire’s laws to benefit the people of our state,” Carson said. “That means not only finding good ideas, but shepherding them through the legislative process and into law. I’m proud of the results I’ve had sponsoring successful legislation.”


The Sunlight Foundation ranks Sen. Nancy Stiles (R-Hampton) as the second most effective Senator and Sen. David Boutin (R-Hooksett) third. Each sponsored twelve bills that made it into law over the past two years.
