November 18, 2019

47 state lawmakers received a perfect score in 2019 and only 16 of which received the Environmental Champion distinction this year.

The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CT LCV) has announced that State Representative Raghib Allie-Brennan (D-Bethel) has been recognized as a 2019 Environmental Champion and received a 100 percent score based upon his voting record during the 2019 legislative session.

The honor reinforces Rep. Allie-Brennan's role as a leading advocate for Connecticut's environmental community and on legislation supporting environmentally responsible policies.

“I’m humbled by this recognition and appreciate all of the work the League of Conservation Voters does to push for environmental reforms here in Connecticut,” says Rep. Allie-Brennan. “Climate change is no longer some faraway threat decades down the line. Its effects are already felt by my constituents here in Greater Danbury as well as in towns and cities across the state. This is why we must bring the fight for clean energy and green jobs into the 2020 session. Our environmental and economic future depends on it.”

47 state lawmakers received a perfect score in 2019 and only 16 of which received the Environmental Champion distinction this year.

“As the Chair of the Clean Energy Caucus, Rep. Allie-Brennan was a vocal proponent for a more impactful Green Economy Act (HB 5002) and argued against fossil fuel investments,” reads the CT LCV Scorecard “Along with Sen. Flexer, he is also leading the effort to stop construction of a new fracked gas power plant in Killingly.”

The CT LCV’s criteria focused on over 20 pieces of legislation introduced in the spring, which can be accessed alongside a full list of legislator scores on their website.
