Connecituct League of Conservation Voters
The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters recently published their annual environmental scorecard for Connecticut. The annual Environmental Scorecard rates state legislators on key environmental priorities each year and helps hold our legislators accountable for passing bills to protect our environment.
WHAT IS THE SCORECARD?
The Environmental Scorecard is an important tool when it comes to holding lawmakers accountable for their positions on issues and sets the stage for the next session’s environmental priorities.
For more than two decades, CTLCV has helped elect environmental champions and hold our legislators accountable for passing bills to protect our environment. Our annual Environmental Scorecard rates state legislators on key environmental priorities each year.
The legislation included in our Scorecard represents a diverse set of environmental concerns. CTLCV consults with other environmental groups, advocates, and stakeholders about key priorities and important initiatives. Throughout the legislative session, we track lawmakers’ votes and send regular updates to legislators and our Members about the bills on our watchlist to be sure the pro-environment position is clear before any votes are cast.
CTLCV grades lawmakers on a 0 – 100% scale based on how they vote on key environmental and democracy bills in committees, the House, and the Senate. Their final score represents an average of their votes on those specific bills.
