MDLCV 2009 Scorecard

The League of Conservation Voters is kind enough to put out environmental scorecards for our national legislators and our legislators in every state government.  The scorecard for my state of Maryland just came out.  Basically legislators get up or down marks for each piece of legislation they vote on in committee or on the floor.  They are then given a percentage score based on how many times they voted the right way out of the total number of opportunities to vote.  I already listed the report of all environmental legislation this past session, and how it fared.

If you live in Maryland I’d encourage you to check out how your representatives voted.  If you live elsewhere, just look up the league of conservation voters scorecard for your state.  The only part of this scorecard I would like to draw attention to is my representatives from District 21.  Delegates Barbara Frush, Ben Barnes, and Joseline Pena-Melnyk, along with State Senator Jim Rosapepe all got 100% scores.  My congratulations and thanks to them.  Although these scorecards can’t measure everything since some bills never come to a vote because of behind the scenes maneuvering and lack of effort, it’s always a good sign when there are 100% scores across the board for your district.
