Knowing of your strong support for conservation and the protection of wildlife, I wanted to share with you some exciting news I received from Defenders of Wildlife.
My support for conservation in the first session of the 112th Congress has earned me a “100%+” favorable rating on the Defenders of Wildlife 2011 Conservation Report Card (page 10). This marks the highest possible rating given to a Member of Congress, and I am very proud to have received this distinction.
Like you, I strongly believe that we must work to protect our natural environment and I will continue to oppose the direction of the most anti-environment House of Representatives in history.
As you know, the leadership in the House continues to push a legislative agenda that seeks to cut funding for vital programs that protect wild lands, weaken landmark air, water and wildlife protection laws, halt efforts to address climate change, and make it easier to drill off our coasts. I’ve been proud to stand against these misguided efforts and will continue to do so for the remainder of this Congress.
As the Representative for one of America’s most beautiful regions and the birthplace of the environmental movement, I am proud to work hard to bring our sense of urgency on environmental protections issues to our nation’s capital.
