State Representative Terrie Wood and other members of the Norwalk Delegation received top ratings by the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters for their role in passing legislation that promotes environmental stewardship and preservation.
The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters releases an annual Environmental Scorecard which ranks individual state legislators on the votes they cast during each legislative session. This year, the environmental advocacy organization tracked 21 bills during the legislative session, including eight bills that were considered “hostile” to the environment and 13 bills considered “favorable to the environment.”
Members of the delegation earned scores of 100 percent for their support of legislation that established laws to mandate online posting of information about sewage spills, improve coastal management policy, reduce phosphorus in water and improve the state’s open space plan.
“I am honored to receive a 100% rating from the CTLCV,” said state Rep. Terrie Wood. “My public service started with preserving open space with The Darien Land Trust and The Trust for Public Land, and promoting environmental awareness and issues with the Darien Environmental Group. I am pleased to continue this bi-partisan work at the state level with the many good organizations such as CTCLV.”
The full report with ratings for all state legislators is available at the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters’ website.
