100% Pro-Environmental Voting

September 25, 2015

State Representative Cathy Abercrombie (D-Berlin/Meriden) has been recognized by the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) for her 100% support of environmental legislation during the 2015 legislative session.

“Supporting environmentally friendly legislation is one of those things that should be effortless,” said Rep. Abercrombie. “It shows our commitment to our families and our community given the impact it has in our daily lives. I am always in support of any legislation that helps us advance and protect our most valuable resources.”

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.
