  Coming as no surprise, Assemb. Michael Fitzpatrick (R-St. James) tied for the highest score on the Conservative Party report card issued Monday.

   Fitzpatrick scored 90 out of a possible 100, supporting Conservative Party positions to slightly increase the state budget, create a less lucrative set of pension benefits for new state employees and oppose a tax hike on those who earn $2 million or more annually.

  Here’s a look at the scores for the Long Island delegation:
