East Bay Assemblymember Sandré R. Swanson has received a 100 percent rating from the Sierra Club on its annual legislative scorecard.
“The Legislature must take aggressive and progressive steps to protect the state’s air, water and natural resources,” said Swanson.
“It is also very important to be mindful of the potentially positive impacts that environmental protection and the greening of our state can have on job development and the fundamental structural planning of California. The Sierra Club has been a strong ally in promoting these goals and I am proud to support their important legislative priorities.”
The Sierra Club rankings evaluated legislative votes on 10 priority environmental protection categories, including measures affecting clean energy, water conservation, smog reduction and other important environmental matters.
“We use our legislative report cards to shine a light on what happens in the Capitol, and to help our members hold their representatives accountable,” said Bill Magavern, director of Sierra Club California. “As a non-partisan organization, we would like to see all elected officials competing to keep up with the environmental values of their constituents.”
