February 21, 2006 STATEMENT ON LCV’S LATEST SCORECARD WASHINGTON, DC – Bill Holbrook, communications director for the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, issued the following statement today with regard to the League of Conservation Voters’ (LCV) latest scorecard tallying Congressional votes alleged to be for or against the quality of our environment: “There they go again. Every election cycle we’re guaranteed a good laugh over how the LCV manages to twist and squeeze Congressional votes in the name of ‘The Environment.’ Whether it relies on a vote on the nomination of Justice Janice Rogers Brown in 2005, PAYGO rules for entitlements in 2004, campaign finance reform and fast track trade authority in 2001, or family planning language every year, the LCV does its very best at inflating the grades for its chosen candidates and its very worst in actually delivering environmental results.”
