9%??

Seems our Congresswoman doesn't score well on the environment.

League of Conservation Voters
National Environmental Scorecard

The nonprofit League of Conservation Voters (LCV) has published a National Environmental Scorecard every Congress since 1970, the year it was founded by leaders of the environmental movement following the first Earth Day. LCV is the political voice for more than nine million members of environmental and conservation organizations and the only organization working full-time to educate citizens about the environmental voting records of Members of Congress.

This edition of the National Environmental Scorecard provides objective, factual information about the environmental voting records of all Members of the final 108th Congress. This Scorecard represents the consensus of experts from 19 respected environmental and conservation organizations who selected the key votes on which Members of Congress should be graded. LCV scores votes on the most important issues of the year, including environmental health and safety protections, resource conservation, and spending for environmental programs.

The votes included in this Scorecard, selected by the Political Committee on September 21, 2004, presented Members of Congress with a real choice on protecting the environment and help distinguish which legislators are working for environmental protection. Except in rare circumstances, the Scorecard excludes consensus action on the environment and issues on which no recorded votes occurred.

Vote Scorecard: 108th, 2nd session
Scores for Pennsylvania Sorted by District

Senate
Senator State 108th, 2nd session Score
Rick Santorum (REP) PA 0%
Arlen Specter (REP) PA 17%

House
Representative District 108th, 2nd session Score
Melissa Hart (REP) PA-4 9%
Mike Doyle (DEM) PA-14 82%
Timothy Murphy (REP) PA-18 9%

I guess we shouldn't complain, at least she beat Rick Santorum!
