2015-2016 Pennsylvania Environmental Scorecard

The Pennsylvania Environmental Scorecard is a joint project of Conservation Voters of PA, PennEnvironment, Sierra Club Pennsylvania Chapter, and Clean Water Action.

Our organizations believe that democracy works best when the electorate is informed about crucial votes that affect them and our environment—and can use the information to engage their elected leaders and hold them accountable.
