McGovern aces environment voting record

Monday, March 26, 2018

As the state affiliate of the national League of Conservation Voters, the Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund would like to congratulate Congressman Jim McGovern on achieving a perfect score of 100 percent on the National Environmental Scorecard for 2017.

This is particularly noteworthy when one considers the national average score for members of Congress was just 45 percent. With attacks on the environment coming daily at the federal level, we are grateful to have a champion like Congressman McGovern representing us in Washington.

We are also happy to report that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey earned 100 percent and 95 percent. respectively. and they both continue to be tireless defenders of the environment here in Massachusetts’ and in the nation’s capital.
