ROCKFORD – The Illinois Environmental Council released its first ever Lifetime Environmental Scorecard debuting each sitting legislator’s average score of all votes cast on environmental legislation in the General Assembly over the course of their legislative careers. State Senator Steve Stadelman (D-Rockford) has been honored with a 91.2 environmental score.

“I’m proud of my record on environmental issues. Making sure we all have clean air to breath and and clean water to drink is imperative, “Stadelman said. “Continuing to protect our environment and the health and safety of the Rockford residents’ area always be a priority of mine.”

The Illinois environmental community has released an annual legislative scorecard since the 1970’s, with a percentage score to each lawmaker based on how they voted during session.

“Senator Steve Stadelman earned top marks for their lifetime pro-environmental voting record, using their power as a state legislator to protect and defend the people and environment in the district they represent,” said IEC Executive Director Jen Walling. “Senator Stadelman is an environmental champion in the General Assembly, and the Illinois Environmental Council applauds their career-long legacy of protecting our environment in Illinois.”

A total of 64 state legislators received recognition for scoring 90% or higher over the course of their legislative careers. IEC releases its scorecard in late summer of each year.
