The conservation scorecards are in

To the editor,

The League of Conservation Voters tracks the votes of our legislators and publishes a scorecard each year. It’s a way to advocate for sound environmental laws and hold elected officials accountable for their votes and actions. Zero is the lowest score possible, 100 the highest in standing up for a clean, healthy environment.

Sen. Cory Gardner’s scorecard in 2018: 7 percent of the time he was an environmental champion. (So far in 2019 his score is 0 percent.) Rep. Scott Tipton: 9 percent. Sen. Michael Bennet: 100 percent. Sen. Gardner and Rep. Tipton are both up for re-election next year.
