WA Conservation Voters 2013-2014 Legislative Scorecard

From the Washington Conservation Voters 2013-2014 Legislative Scorecard:
Find out how your legislator scored here

“Published once every two years since 1992, Washington Conservation Voters Scorecard is the best guide to environmental politics in Washington State. It is the clearest accountability tool showing how legislators succeeded or failed to protect the environment. It is read by thousands of voters, elected officials, and opinion leaders across the state. It not only scores the environmental voting records of individual state legislators, but also paints the picture of the past two sessions.”

“The Scorecard includes 12 Senate votes and 8 House votes, on issues ranging from public health protections, to clean energy standards, to land-use protections. These votes came at a time under the new anti-environmental Majority Caucus Coalition, which took control of the Senate at the start of the 2013 Legislative Session. This illustrates the challenge we had in front of us: having to spend too much time protecting against rollbacks of even the most core environmental protections, and failing to make progress on important issues like climate change. In the Senate, 20 senators scored over 80%, while 30 scored under 50%. In the House, 53 representatives scored over 80%, and 47 scored under 50%.
