Scores Examine Key Conservation Votes by State Leaders Amid 2023 Legislative Session
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — Today, the Nevada Conservation League announced it will release its biennial legislative scorecard during the organization’s Home Means Nevada Awards dinner on Saturday, October 7. The Conservation Scorecard grades Governor Lombardo and state lawmakers on key environmental bills regarding climate change, energy, public lands, wildlife, water, and environmental justice during the 82nd legislative session.
Since 2003, the Nevada Conservation League has published scorecards to help Nevadans understand how their legislators protect our climate, air, water, land, and communities. The Conservation Scorecard tells the story of how our elected representatives leveraged their power to help lay the groundwork for a healthier climate and more sustainable future.
Attendees of Home Means Nevada will have first access to the scorecard on Saturday, October 7th. The scorecard will be available online to the general public on Monday, October 9th.
Home Means Nevada is Nevada Conservation League’s annual fundraising gala to celebrate legislative progress for our environment and recognize exceptional community leaders who worked to better protect our climate, air, water, land, and health. This year, the organization will award the following community leaders who share a vision for a better climate future:
- The Harry Reid Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes an exemplary individual in Nevada’s conservation community who promotes all forms of environmental advocacy and will be awarded to long-time conservation advocate, Alan O’Neill.
- The Green Guardian Award recognizes those dedicated to increasing access to a healthier and cleaner environment for Nevadans and will be awarded to Ashley Hemmers, the tribal administrator for the Fort Mojave Tribe.
- The Green Business of the Year Award recognizes locally-based companies that place environmental consciousness at the core of their practice and will be given to Gear Hut, a family-owned, recreation gear consignment shop in Reno, NV.
The award winners will join Senator Jacky Rosen and other conservation leaders taking the stage at the Home Means Nevada 2023 Awards Dinner.
