(Albany, NY) - The New York League of Conservation Voters released their 2021 Environmental Scorecard for the New York State Legislature, giving Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins a 97% for her commitment to environmental legislation. The New York League of Conservation Voters releases this scorecard as a way to hold elected officials accountable for climate policy, and highlight the important work being done at the state level to improve New York’s environmental legacy. 

“As the Leader of the State Senate, I have taken action to pass the strongest environmental legislation in the nation,” Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said. “This session I led our conference to advance numerous environmental bills, including provisions that reduce carbon emissions, improve energy efficiency, eliminate lead from our school water supply, and conserve our vulnerable wetlands. This legislation not only protects our environment, but prioritizes the health, finances and wellbeing of the people in Westchester County. I thank the New York League of Conservation Voters for their meaningful advocacy on this issue, and will continue to fight for our district’s environmental protection in Albany.”
