2019-2020 Pennsylvania Environmental Scorecard
The scores don’t lie. They tell the real story about whether or not our legislators are working to protect our environment, health and safety or serving other agendas. That’s why we collaborated on the 2019-2020 Pennsylvania Environmental Scorecard which compiles a list of the most important environmental votes taken this session in the Pennsylvania General Assembly.
An influx of 49 new legislators, including a record number of women and 31 new environmental champions brought fresh and critical voices to environmental fights. Yet anti-environmental leadership in both chambers still made it difficult to pass pro-environmental policies and forced defensive measures to combat efforts to promote plastics, derail actions that would address climate change and roll back protections for oil and gas operations.
See what side of the fight your legislators were on.
