Review your RI Legislator's Environmental Record with our 2015-2016 Green Report Card

This biennial Green Report Card evaluates the environmental records of Rhode Island lawmakers on ECRI priority issues for the combined 2015 and 2016 legislative sessions. The report includes letter grades issued to individual General Assembly members based on bill votes and sponsorships, along with a qualitative evaluation of the Governor. Lastly, we reflect on notable environmental policy developments during the two year span.

Applications are now available for the 10th Annual Loraine Tisdale Environmental Education Grant Awards from ECRI's Education Fund.
