It evaluates the environmental records of RI lawmakers on our priority issues for the 2013 – 2014 term of the General Assembly. Letter grades are assigned to individual legislators based on their bill votes and sponsorships. In addition, you'll find a qualitative evaluation of Governor Chafee's record over the same period.
