Rep. Gonzales Scores an A+ on Environmental Record from the Texas League of Conservation Voters
 
McALLEN--- State Representative Veronica Gonzales earned a perfect score for her voting record on environmental legislation in the 81st Legislative Session from the Texas League of Conservation Voters (TLCV).
 
"Texas is a beautiful state blessed with many natural resources and I believe that the laws we pass should protect and preserve our air, water and land for future generations," Rep. Gonzales said. "My votes reflect that belief and I am proud to earn the League of Conservation Voters' support."
 
TLCV is a non-partisan organization that advocates environmental protection and conservation.  At the end of each legislative session, TLCV  issues a scorecard grading lawmakers on a wide range of votes and issues including renewable energy, green technologies, recycling and waste disposal. 
 
Gonzales was one of only 53 of the 150 member House members to earn a perfect score on her votes for 12 bills that addressed a variety of issues including: green state building standards; cleaner vehicles for state agencies, a trust fund to help low- income residents weatherize their homes;  creating financing districts for developing renewable energy sources and increasing public beach access. The league also endorsed each House and Senate members who earned an "A" on the scorecard.
