Environmental Scorecard: Casey and Doyle Stand Alone

League of Conservation Voters

The League of Conservation Voters has released its Congressional environmental scorecard for 2012. For the 14 considered votes in the Senate, Bob Casey scored 79 pct in 2012 (lifetime- 93 pct) whereas Pat Toomey scored 0 pct (9 pct). Perhaps in deference to labor unions, Casey dropped points for his support of the Keystone XL Pipeline. In the House Mike Doyle did well with a 77 pct score (70 pct lifetime) on 35 votes, losing points with support of nuclear and fossil fuel funding. Democrat Altmire scored 29 pct before retiring, and Critz scored 43 pct. Among the region’s Republicans, Murphy scored 11 pct, Thompson 9 pct, and Kelly and Shuster 6 pct each.
