State Representative T. R. Rowe (R-123) has been recognized by the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) for his pro-environment votes during the 2012 legislative session. Rowe earned a perfect 100% on bills scored by the CTLCV.
During the 2012 legislative session, Rep. Rowe supported 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.
“There never seems to be a shortage of state environmental concerns to address in the legislature,” said Representative Rowe. “I am proud to have earned a favorable score from the CTLCV, but prouder that important measures were taken this past session to improveConnecticut’s environment. It is also important to remember that one need not be ‘anti-business’ to be ‘pro-environment.’ To the contrary, when done properly, and with attention to detail, strong environmental policies can yield favorable business consequences.”
