100% Environmental Score Earned

September 28, 2015

Representative Gentile has been recognized by the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) for her 100% support of environmental legislation during the 2015 legislative session.

“I am pleased to see this report by CTLCV as I believe a key component of healthy communities is a healthy environment,” Rep. Gentile, former House Chair of the Environment Committee said. “I will continue to support like initiatives that aim to preserve and protect against the effects of harmful legislative acts.”

CTLCV’s Environmental Scorecard assesses both lawmakers’ votes on environmental legislation and their roles in championing specific issues.

Environmental issues this year included banning microbeads, encouraging residential solar, reducing pesticide use on municipal playgrounds, preserving the fiscal sustainability of state parks, open space and various clean water projects including the Long Island Sound Blue Plan.
