The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) last month issued a new National Environmental Scorecard and I'm proud to tell you I was given a 100% score. The LCV scorecard is an update to their yearly ratings to take into account recent Congressional votes.
With only a few months into this new Congress, the Republican leadership has tried to take us back to a time before we had environmental protections. We cannot afford to have sewage on our beaches, while we subsidize the oil industry -- it just makes no sense. I will do everything I can to fight this, quite frankly offensive, agenda of rolling back the protections we put in place over the past several decades.
These new scores take into account the environmental, public health, and energy votes taken on amendments to the House-passed spending bill.
