Click here to see how your member of Congress voted on the 2013 National Environmental Scorecard. This year we have added a new feature that allows you to see every score in one place, and gives you the ability to sort by party and score. Also, we are making it easier for you to see where your member of Congress stands over their lifetime on a particular issue, including categorizes like climate change, dirty energy and toxics. Congratulate your members of Congress that did well and make sure to express displeasure with your legislators if they sided with polluters and earned low scores at http://scorecard.lcv.org.
