Sen. Boucher Receives Highest Score from League of Conservation Voters
(Wilton, September 12) State Senator Toni Boucher (R-26), today received the highest score among all state senators in 2018 by the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters. The results were made available in the CTLCV’s Conservation Scorecard just released. Senator Boucher received a score of 91%.
“The CTLCV grades legislators on a 0% to 100% scale based on their votes on environmental bills in committees, the Senate and the House. The 2018 final score is the average of the legislator’s votes on key bills we score,” explained the CTLCV in the introduction to their published scorecard.
In response to the news, Senator Boucher remarked, “I’m very pleased to have received the highest score in the senate for my record of voting on environmental issues this year. Connecticut’s environment is one of its most important resources, from its clean air to its pristine green landscapes to its beautiful blue waterways. Connecticut’s environment is a big part of why we choose to live here and raise our families here. We must always protect it.”
Senator Boucher is Senate Chief Deputy Majority Leader, Co-Chair of the Education and Transportation Committees and Vice Chair of the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee. She represents the 26th Senate district which comprises Bethel, New Canaan, Redding, Ridgefield, Weston, Westport and Wilton.
