AUGUSTA — A Maine conservation group has graded state lawmakers based on their votes on key environmental bills this session.
Maine Conservation Voters released their 27th annual scorecard on Thursday.
Lawmakers were graded on seven issues including wind power, paint recycling and genetically modified food labeling.
Sixty-nine representatives and 13 senators received a perfect score from the group with seven pro-environment votes. No lawmakers voted against conservation on all seven issues.
Lawmakers are also given a lifetime rating and the group says that several GOP lawmakers improved their overall scores this year.
Maine Conservation Voters is sending the report card to more than 13,000 Maine homes so residents can see how their representatives voted this session.
