2020 Scorecard

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo..

The 2020 legislative session was dominated by COVID-19 response measures. Luckily that meant few anti-environmental measures saw the light of day. It also meant another session with no positive progress for clean air, clean water, and clean energy.

So with no bills to score this year, we are reporting legislators’ lifetime scores in our interactive maps below. We have also included articles outlining the issues at play in recent years and moving forward, as we hope to build toward a Green Caucus majority in the General Assembly.

This year’s scorecard was prepared by our 2020 Stanback program interns Sean Starkey, Dani Thomas, and Jessica Zhao.

Help your friends and family across North Carolina know the score too.
