The bipartisan Connecticut League of Conservation Voters recently recognized State Representative John Frey (R-Ridgefield) for his efforts at preserving the environment with a perfect 100% score for votes supporting green initiatives in Connecticut.
The scorecard grades lawmakers on their votes on up to 20 different bills related to the environment.
“I would not be fulfilling my duties to Ridgefield if I was not helping protect and preserve the forests, wildlife and natural resources that make our town and state so beautiful,” said Frey. “I thank the League of Conservation Voters for doing their part to help protect Connecticut’s natural resources and for recognizing my efforts to try and do so as well.”
During the 2012 legislative session, Rep. Frey co-sponsored bills that will protect open space; reduce harmful levels of phosphorus in Connecticut’s rivers, lakes, and streams; provide better, timely information to address sewage spills; and modernize the state’s coastal zone management laws in a way that balances environmental concerns with the rights of property owners.
