WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV), a national nonpartisan environmental organization, released its 2020 National Environmental Scorecard. Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) received a 100% rating from LCV for his votes on key environmental issues.
“I’m glad to receive a perfect score from the League of Conservation Voters for my voting record in support of the most pressing environmental issues facing American families,” said Congressman Hoyer. “Communities throughout Maryland are experiencing the effects of climate change, and it’s critically important that Congress continues to take steps to protect the health of our environment and ensure the resiliency of our communities. I was proud to bring critical pieces of legislation to the House Floor last Congress, including the Great American Outdoors Act and the Moving Forward Act, to address the climate crisis. I’ll continue to work closely with my colleagues to advance legislation that protects the health of our air and water, combats pollution, and makes smart investments in our infrastructure systems.”
“We want to congratulate Representative Hoyer for receiving a 100% on LCV’s 2020 environmental scorecard,” said Maryland LCV Executive Director Kim Coble. “Representative Hoyer has consistently fought for the environmental safeguards that keep Maryland’s air, land, and water clean. We are grateful for the role he has played in funding and protecting our most treasured resources, including oysters, the Chesapeake Bay, and its key tributaries.”
