Empower Texans’ Scorecard: The conservative group announced that it would not release its biennial “Fiscal Responsibility Index” until after any special session(s) called by Gov. Greg Abbott, but it did provide some information about what those rankings will show. “Every Republican member of the Senate has a passing grade, but only 21 of the 94 House Republicans are passing,” wrote Michael Quinn Sullivan in the group’s blog. In 2015, 50 House Republicans scored at least a 70 on the group’s scorecard.
