The 2016 Congressional Arts Report Card is a one-stop guide to help you make informed decisions at the ballot box. We've used metrics and analysis based on previous congression voting records, sponsorship of key arts legislation, and participation in the cultural caucuses. Because there were not enough recorded votes to assign traditional grades in 2016, we have provided a "Thumbs Up" for those members who have exhibited pro-arts support.
