100% On Environment Votes

October 14, 2015

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

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

“I want to thank the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters for this recognition,” Rep. Vargas said. “Protecting our environment will continue to be a legislative priority for me. It’s a quality of life issue.”

“To enact good environmental laws, we need good people at the state legislature to fight for us,” Lori Brown, CTLVC Executive Director, said.

The annual environmental scorecard grades state lawmakers based on how they vote on significant environmental legislation. This year the scorecard grades legislators' votes on sixteen bills that came up during the 2015 legislative session.
