AssemblyRepublican Assemblyman Bill Nojay was rated the most conservative member of either house of the state Legislature based on an analysis and ranking on Friday by the state Conservative Party.

Nojay, a Rochester-area lawmaker and vocal critic of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, received an overall score of 96 percent, according to the party’s analysis of 25 bills considered the Legislature in the last session.

Seven senators were tied for the highest in their chamber with a 76 percent rating: Sens. Cathy Young, Patty Ritchie, Michael Razenhofer, Betty Little, Joe Griffo, Pat Gallivan and Tom Crocci.

“A review of the twenty-five bills used in this year’s ratings will show voters how some passed bills are specious or costly to taxpayers and others will show how they will help New Yorkers,” said Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long. “The ratings give voters a scorecard on how their individual legislator voted on a diverse range of bills considered in the legislative session.”

Senators were ranked on measures that included mandate relief for localities, the education investment tax credit as well as a measure designed to reform the gun control package known as the SAFE Act.

In the Assembly, lawmakers were rated based on bills that included measures that would regulate electronic cigarettes or “e-cigs”, reform of the state’s juvenile justice laws through raising the age of incarceration and an effort to raise the state’s minimum wage to $15.
