The annual League of Conservation Voters’ scorecard is a useful revelation of how well our members of Congress are performing with respect to the environment. For example, in 2013 year Tim Murphy (R-Mt. Lebanon) was the only Pennsylvanian member to score zero percent on the 28 votes considered most important in 2013, although his lifetime score is 11 pct. Local fellow Republicans didn’t do much better, with Kelly (Butler) at 4 pct, Rothfus (Ross Twp) at 7 pct, and Shuster (Bedford) at 11 pct. Mike Doyle (D-Pittsburgh) scored 82 pct in 2013 to raise his lifetime score to 71 pct. A similar split occurred in the Senate, with Bob Casey scoring 85 pct on 13 votes in 2013 for a lifetime score of 91 pct, while Pat Toomey managed a score of 8 pct and a lifetime score of 9 pct.
