Environment Georgia and Georgia Conservation Voters released their 2019-2020 Georgia Environmental Scorecard last month, revealing which of Georgia’s legislators are champions in the fight against climate change, and which aren’t. The scorecard, which can be seen here, records the votes of legislators around 14 key environmental bills and resolutions before coming up with an aggregate score that is applied to each legislator.

This latest scorecard showed quite clearly that while progress has been made to improve on environmental records from multiple legislators, there is still plenty of work that needs to be done. However, that reality should not take away from celebrating the records of the legislators that earned the very best marks in the 2019-2020 scorecard.

There were 31 legislators that received perfect scores for the 2019-2020 scorecard. These legislators are:

From the House:

Kimberly Alexander
Erick Allen
Debra Bazemore
