SACRAMENTO • With a record number of California legislators earning failing grades, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association issued A’s to two of the High Desert’s three state representatives.

The anti-tax group gave an A and a 100-percent score to freshman Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, R-Twin Peaks, one of only five legislators to receive a perfect score.

Steve Knight, R-Palmdale, likewise received an A, with a 95 percent score, while state Sen. Sharon Runner, RPalmdale, scored a B and an 87.5 percent rating.
