2023 Legislative Report Card
The grades (and awards) are in! How did your representatives vote on environmental bills during the 2023 legislative session? Check out our legislative report card.
We graded each member of the House and Senate based on how they voted on 36 bills related to air quality, clean energy, water conservation, transportation, and homes and buildings.
In true yearbook fashion, we also handed out superlative awards to highlight environmental champions on the Hill and lawmakers who are not voting with their constituents' health and future in mind.
MVPs: Sen. Kirk Cullimore and Rep. Andrew Stoddard
Rising Star: Rep. Tyler Clancy
Step Forward: Sen. Nate Blouin
Step Back: Rep. Quinn Kotter
The Bad MVP (Most Valuable for Polluters): Rep. Ken Ivory
The legislative report card grading process provides our community with a clear environmental voting track record of elected officials and a tool to hold them accountable during future elections.
