Kupchick scores perfect environment marks

The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters this week recognized State Representative Brenda Kupchick (R-132) for her efforts at preserving the environment and achieving a 100% voting record for supporting environmental-friendly green initiatives in Connecticut.

The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) releases an annual Environmental Scorecard which ranks individual state legislators on the votes they cast during each legislative session. This year, the environmental advocacy organization tracked 24 bills during the legislative session, including three bills that were considered “hostile” to the environment and 21 bills considered “favorable to the environment.”

Kupchick attended the kickoff of the 2015 CT League of Conservation Voters Scorecard at the home of Fairfield resident Mary Hogue who is on the Board of Directors of the CTLCV.

Kupchick said, “The CRLCV works to share important information with the public and is a valuable resource for legislators. I join Fairfield residents in caring deeply about protecting our environment. I work hard to represent their concerns.

During the 2015 session, Rep. Kupchick co-sponsored legislation creating the Long Island Sound Blue Plan which would have Connecticut enact a long-term plan for the benefit of the Sound’s ecosystem for future generations is vital. The goal of the plan would be to provide a “clear and actionable vision on how to balance commerce and development goals with environmental preservation.

Rep. Kupchick also supported bills that improve the financial sustainability of our state parks that all too often sustain funding cuts during tough economic times and legislation that helps land conservation advocates achieve their open space goals.
