04 Mar 2013  |   Hannah Blatt

Since the release of the League of Conservation Voters’ National Environmental Scorecard, many elected officials have been touting their high scores and their commitment to the environment.

Below are some examples of what the Congressional members have been saying:
 
Senator Jeanne Shaheen (NH), who earned a 100 percent rating on the 2012 Scorecard, said:

“Protecting our environment and public health, reducing our dependence on foreign oil and are top priorities of mine and I am honored to have the recognition of a group like League of conservation Voters who are so seriously committed to these issues…There is so much more to be done in the coming years and I look forward to continuing my work, along with the LCV, to implement comprehensive energy policies that protect our health and environment for the future.”

Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) tweeted:


Senator Jeff Merkley (OR), who earned 100 percent rating on the 2012 Scorecard, and is currently the only Senator who has a 100 percent lifetime score, said:

“Clean air and water are essential to healthy families and healthy communities. I’ve been proud to partner with the League of Conservation Voters in my work in the Senate to protect our environment and wilderness areas and to accelerate the transition to an economy that runs on clean energy...”

Representative Carolyn B. Maloney (NY) tweeted:

 

Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (MD), who earned a 91 percent rating on the 2012 Scorecard, said:

“I am pleased to have received a strong rating from the LCV on their annual scorecard…Throughout my career, I’ve been focused on preserving our environment and I remain committed to protecting our outstanding natural resources and pursuing responsible energy policies.”

Representative Ted Deutch (FL) earned a 97 percent rating on the 2012 Scorecard. He tweeted:


Representative Steve Cohen (TN), who earned a 97 percent rating of the 2012 Scorecard, said:

“It is an honor to be recognized by the League of Conservation Voters for my record on the environment…If we are going to improve the air we breathe, the water we drink and preserve our environment for future generations, we must treat our planet with the care it deserves.”
