Assemblyman Buchwald Receives 4th Consecutive Perfect Score for His Strong Environmental Record
For the fourth year in a row, Assemblyman David Buchwald (D-Mount Kisco) has received a perfect legislative score from the Environmental Advocates of New York, a leading environmental watchdog group in the state. Assemblyman Buchwald has had an unbroken perfect score for the entirety of his time in the New York State Assembly.
“Being recognized for four straight years as having a perfect environmental voting record means a lot to me,” said Assemblyman Buchwald. “Westchester residents sent me to the State Assembly to deliver the message that we have to protect clean air and water, keep toxic chemicals away from our children and emergency responders, and take on the challenges of climate change. I fight for those principles and at the same time seek to grow our economy through environmental innovation and energy efficiency.”
Peter Iwanowicz, executive director of EPL/Environmental Advocates said, “New Yorkers can be thankful to have people like Assemblyman Buchwald representing their interests in the state Legislature. Year after year, and on vote after vote, Assemblyman Buchwald has proven himself a steadfast champion of our environment and public health. EPL/Environmental Advocates thanks the Assemblyman for his leadership, and applauds him for once again earning the high score amongst his colleagues.”
Every year, Environmental Advocates grades New York State lawmakers according to their votes on bills that could help or harm our air, land, water, wildlife and health. Based in Albany, the group monitors state government, evaluates proposed laws and champions policies and practices that ensure the responsible stewardship of our shared environment.
Earlier this year, Assemblyman Buchwald co-sponsored environmentally responsible legislation that classifies hydrofracking waste as hazardous material and keeps harmful chemicals out of children’s products.
