New York, NY Assemblywoman Nily Rozic (D,WF-Flushing) has earned a perfect score on the New York League of Conservation Voters 2019 Environmental Scorecard. The annual scorecard selects the most impactful environmental bills in each legislative session and ranks each member on whether they voted in favor of key environmental bills. This is the third consecutive year in which Rozic has earned a perfect score.
This years legislative session renewed New Yorks commitment to advancing bold solutions addressing the realities of climate change impacting our communities, said Rozic. I am proud to have contributed with legislation paving the way for the future of green transportation and micro mobility and look forward to a continued partnership with the New York League of Conservation Voters.
This year, two of Rozics bills were included as priority bills for scoring: A4880 that would require the New York State Department of Transportation to disclose information on taxpayer funded capital projects and A7431 which would authorize local governments to allow and regulate the use of electric bicycles and scooters. Both bills passed the State Legislature and await the Governors signature.
We commend Assemblymember Nily Rozic on her perfect score on this years State Environmental Scorecard, said Julie Tighe, President of the New York League of Conservation Voters. She helped make 2019 one of the most pro-environment years in recent memory by sponsoring a bill to legalize e-bikes and e-scooters and a bill that requires a State Transportation Plan. This score shows she listened to the voices of conservation voters in Queens who asked her to make the environment a top priority.
The record of the votes is available on the NYLCV website.
