2012 Conservation Scorecard - Where the Rubber Meets the Road for Colorado Conservation Issues

  • 2 Comments
  • by: ColoradoConservationVoters

( – promoted by Colorado Pols)

This week we released the 2012 Colorado Legislative Conservation Scorecard which highlights the priorities of the conservation community and key conservation votes from each legislator during the 2012 Colorado legislative session.  

This is where the rubber meets the road for state level conservation issues in Colorado.  Our scorecard provides easy reference for Coloradans to see which legislators are conservation champions fighting for our clean air and water and which are falling short of matching the broad bipartisan support for protecting our air, land and water Coloradans express in public poll after poll.

The Scorecard analyzes key conservation issues and votes considered during the 2012 Colorado legislative session on a number of conservation community priorities including efforts to increase the recycling of electronic waste, kick starting the electric vehicle market, and ensuring long term wind and solar renewable energy funding.  The report also singles out a number of notable representatives for their emerging leadership or their long term support for environmental issues.  

Below are some Scorecard quick hits but there is much more in the report on how your State legislators voted on conservation issues in 2012.

•31 out of 100 legislators scored 100%, 51 out   of 100 scored 80% or higher.

•Low scores include 8% for Rep. Marsha Looper, Kevin Priola, Spencer Swalm in the State House, 14% by Sen. Bill Cadman.

•Three women have the highest score (71%) among Senate Republicans – Senators Roberts, Spence and White.

•Rep. Cheri Gerou has the highest score (46%) for House Republicans.

•Notable Leaders:

Senate Leadership: Senate President Brandon Shaffer, Majority Leader John Morse, Caucus Chair Morgan Carroll.

Leaving a Legacy:  Senator Bob Bacon and Rep. Judy Solano.

Conservation Champion: Democratic Caucus Whip Dickey Lee Hullinghorst

Rising Stars:  Rep. Dave Young, Pete Lee, and Millie Hamner, Senators Angela Giron and Jeanne Nicholson.

Breaking the partisan divide:  Rep. Don Coram and Brian DelGrosso.

  1. ..the Senators that voted against the Vet Lottery scratcher because you told them to.

    ‘Cause that 1% of lottery sales that you MIGHT have lost would have been SO WASTED on Veteran programs.
