State Sen. Kip Bateman received a 100 percent rating, while Assemblywoman Donna Simon was at the bottom of the list with an 18 percent rating.
The third District 16 legislator, Jack Ciattarelli, received a 33 percent rating. All three legislators are Republicans, who as a group scored 52 percent in the state Senate and 41 percent in the Assembly.
Simon and Ciattarelli are up for election this year. ...
Simon was absent for a vote opposing the proposed Pilgrim Pipeline that would carry unrefined oil down the Hudson Valley through New Jersey to refineries in Linden.
"I also believe in alternative energy, so long as it is not cost prohibitive," Simon said in a statement.
Bateman received a perfect score on the 11 bills on the report card. His rating was the highest among Republicans in the State Senate.
