Principles of Liberty

What we do

We provide the tools to help you influence Colorado public policy by rating the bills and legislators according to the strict standards of our Core Principles. Please use these tools to keep your legislators accountable.

Core Principles

Our Core Principles guide us as we analyze legislation. We focus on the core principles of good government our nation was founded upon and compare those principles with the actions of our state legislators.

Legislative Ratings

The legislative ratings are a Principles of Liberty creation that analyzes bills according to our Core Principles. We also rate legislators at the end of each session by how they closely they voted with our principles.


Each year we provide training sessions around the state to provide you with the tools you need to analyze legislation, develop your own principles of government, and voice your opinion to our elected officials.
