The scorecard was generated by EPL/Environmental Advocates, who since their formation in 1969, have worked to advance environmental protections and encourage public participation in environmental policy discussions. This year, Senator Serrano received a perfect score on his EPL/Environmental Advocates scorecard, which tracks legislator's votes on bills affecting New York's environment.
"Issues involving our precious environment are so important not only for today's generation, but for generations to come. Together with my colleagues in the Senate Majority, we achieved the greatest environmental legislative session in decades. I was proud to support efforts to ban toxins from children’s toys, block offshore drilling, affirm New Yorkers’ rights to clean air and water, and advance the strongest environmental protections in the nation. I would like to thank EPL/Environmental Advocates and my colleagues for their advocacy in working to improve our state's air, land, water and public health.”
