Rep. Johnson receives high marks on environment
Environment America awards 100 percent rating for consistent green voting record
- Rep. Hank Johnson (GA-04) was awarded a 100 percent score by Environment America, a leading environmentalist advocacy group, for his pro-environment voting record in 2009.
“These members received 100 percent scores for consistently voting to protect the environment,” said Environment America’s Washington, D.C. director, Anna Aurilio.
According to Environment America, Rep. Johnson took the pro-environment position on every relevant vote in 2009. Rep. Johnson supported legislation to establish a cap-and-trade climate change mitigation policy, invest $80 billion of Recovery Act funds in clean energy and green transportation and protect more than 2 million acres of public lands and national treasures.
“Protection of our imperiled planet is a central challenge of our time,” said Johnson. “Our work now ensures the future of our planet for our children’s generation and future generations to come. I’m very proud of my record.”
