Washington, DC – Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11) earned a perfect 100 percent score from the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) on its 2018 National Environmental Scorecard. The report also lauded Congressman DeSaulnier’s lifetime score of 99 percent. These marks reflect the Congressman’s long record of advocacy for environmental issues.
“For the third year in a row, Congressman DeSaulnier received a perfect 100% on LCV’s 2018 National Environmental Scorecard, demonstrating once again his commitment to clean air, clean water, and the urgent need to address climate change,” said League of Conservation Voters Vice President of Government Affairs Sara Chieffo. “Beyond his score, DeSaulnier has been a champion in protecting our bedrock environmental safeguards, defending the clean car standards, and opposing dangerous offshore drilling that jeopardizes our coasts. As a member of the Transportation & Infrastructure and Oversight Committees, we look forward to working with him to advance a climate-smart infrastructure package and hold the Trump Administration accountable for its attacks on our air, water and health.”
“In a time when the Administration is questioning scientific fact and rolling back environmental protections that were put in place to promote public health and protect our planet, it has never been more important to support environmental policies. I am honored to be recognized by the League of Conservation Voters, and I will continue to partner with them on forward-looking environmental policies that will help drive growth, innovation, and competitiveness in California and across the nation,” said Congressman DeSaulnier.
The League of Conservation Voters Environmental Scorecard provides objective, factual information about the most important environmental legislation considered and the voting records of members of Congress throughout the 115th Congress. The Scorecard represents the consensus of experts from approximately 20 respected environmental and conservation organizations.
Congressman DeSaulnier is a former member of the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
