Representative Trahan Earns A+ on Environmental Scorecard

March 16, 2024

On February 28, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the 2023 National Environmental Scorecard, with our Congresswoman Lori Trahan earning a perfect score of 100%. Our senators, Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey also earned 100% scores. We’re lucky to have them representing our district and state, protecting our health, democracy, and environment in Washington.  

The scorecard has been used for over 50 years to analyze the environmental records of members of Congress, evaluating key votes on the environment. Massachusetts’ entire congressional delegation earned A or A+ scores, placing it among the highest-ranking delegations in the country.   

These champions in Congress led and supported many of the forward-looking climate, clean energy, and environmental justice bills and initiatives in 2023. They also passed the largest suite of bills ever to address the transition to clean energy, providing the Commonwealth, our municipalities, and individual consumers access to grants and rebates that will speed our efforts to attain net zero emissions and create healthy, resilient communities.  

As we continue taking bold action on climate and clean energy in 2024 and beyond, LCV and its state affiliate, the Environmental League of Massachusetts (ELM) Action Fund, applaud champions like Rep. Trahan, Sen. Markey, and Sen. Warren for prioritizing urgent climate action and the health of our communities.
