State Senator Tony Hwang (R-28), today received the highest score among all Connecticut General Assembly state senators in 2018 by the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV). Senator Hwang received a score of 91%. The results were made available in the just released CTLCV Environmental Scorecard.
"The CTLCV grades legislators on a 0% to 100% scale based on their votes on environmental bills in committees, the Senate and the House. The 2018 final score is the average of the legislator's votes on key bills we score," explained the CTLCV in the introduction to their published scorecard.
In response to the news, Senator Hwang said, "This score affirms my commitment to environmental advocacy throughout my legislative career. Our natural resources ranging from water, land and air are an essential component to a healthier and better quality of life in our communities. I also want to thank CTLCV, The Aspetuck Land Trust, The Nature Conservancy along with many of the partners in the environmental movement who work so hard to inform, engage and participate in the legislative process.”
