Scores Examine Key Conservation Votes by State Leaders Amid 2021 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 Tuesday, November 9. The Conservation Scorecard grades Governor Sisolak and state lawmakers on key environmental bills regarding climate change, energy, public lands, environmental justice, wildlife, and democracy during the 81st legislative session.
Since 2003, the Nevada Conservation League has worked 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 the Home Means Nevada will have first access to the scorecard on Tuesday, November 9. The scorecard will be available online to the general public on Wednesday, November 10.
