WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) released the following statement in response to earning a perfect score for her 2019 voting record by the League of Conservation Voters (LCV). Senator Rosen received this score for her commitment to protecting our country’s public lands, wildlife conservation, and fighting climate change.
“Public lands are a source of natural wonder and historical significance in Nevada and across the country,” said Senator Rosen. “I’m proud to have earned a score of 100 from LCV for my record of voting for wildlife conservation, funding to protect our national parks, and to combat the threat of climate change. I will continue to stand in support of legislation that protects our environment for future generations.”
BACKGROUND: This week, Senator Rosen announced her original co-sponsorship of the bipartisan Great American Outdoors Act (S. 3422), landmark legislation to preserve and protect our country’s public lands.
Since 1970, the National Environmental Scorecard has been the yardstick for evaluating the environmental records of members of Congress. The Scorecard represents the consensus of experts from about 20 respected environmental and conservation organizations who selected the key votes on which members of Congress should be scored. The votes included in the Scorecard presented members of Congress with a real choice and help distinguish which legislators are working for environmental protection.
