Environmental Advocates rates Assemblymember votes
Nick Reisman reports for New York State of Politics that the Environmental Advocates Action group on June 16 released its scorecard of state Assemblymembers legislative votes. “As this scorecard clearly shows, the Assembly majority has a strong commitment to improving the health and environment of New York," said Peter Iwanowicz, the group's executive director. "With over 89 members receiving a score of 95% or better along with the fact that no 'smokestack rated' bill came to the floor for a vote, the Assembly is providing the leadership New York’s environment needs.” Locally, the group gave these scores on environmental issues:
• Jake Ashby, a Republican who represents the 107th District, went from a 56 rating in 2021 to a 68 in 2022.
• Didi Barrett, a Democrat who represents the 106th District, went from a 96 rating in 2021 to a 100 in 2022.
• Colin Schmitt, a Republican representing the 99th District and running for the 18th Congressional District seat, had a 56 rating in both 2021 and 2022.
• Chris Tague, a Republican representing the 102nd District, went from a 26 rating in 2021 to a 32 rating this year.
