November 13, 2009

Earns 91% On Environmental Organization’s 2009 Scorecard

State Senator Rob Kane (R-32) earned 91% on the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters’ 2009 Scorecard for his support of legislation singled out by the pro-environment organization this year.

“I strongly believe that we have a responsibility to be good stewards of our natural resources, and I am grateful for the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters’ recognition of my support for pro-environment legislation,” said Senator Kane.

The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters is a statewide nonprofit organization that works with environmental advocacy groups to identify and highlight legislation dealing with air, water, wildlife, open space, and health. This year, the League focused on legislators’ votes on 19 bills regarding, among other things, rivers and wetlands, solar power, open space, bottle recycling, and toxic chemicals.

“Of course, as a legislator is always nice to get an “A” for working hard on issues that make a difference in the lives of Connecticut residents. I appreciate the recognition,” said Senator Kane.

Senator Kane said he welcomes the opportunity to discuss environmental issues, along with other issues of interest to his constituents. He can be reached at his legislative office in Hartford at 860-240-8800, or via e-mail to [email protected].
