Nazarian Scores a 100% on Environmental Issues from CA League of Conservation Voters

For immediate release:

State Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian (D-Sherman Oaks) has earned a perfect score on the California League of Conservation Voters’ 2013 California Environmental Scorecard.

The annual scorecard selects the most significant environmental bills in each legislative session and ranks each Legislators vote on key environmental bills.

“I am proud of my perfect score with the California League of Conservation Voters, and applaud my colleagues who have joined me in moving toward a cleaner, greener, and environmentally-friendly state. From our health to our economy, every aspect of our life is affected by the quality of our environment." Nazarian said. “In the future, I will remain as committed to introducing and supporting environmentally conscious legislation as I was in my first term in office.”

Assemblymember Nazarian authored AB 649, which would have placed a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing until the Secretary of the Natural Resources Agency and the Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency could access the health and environmental impacts of fracking. The bill died in the Assembly Appropriations Committee. 

This year, the CLCV “graded” legislators on key bills dealing with hydraulic fracturing, renewable energy, toxic chemical protection and pollution, among others.

“The California League of Conservation Voters congratulates Assemblymember Nazarian on his 100% rating on the 2013 environmental scorecard. We look forward to continuing our relationship and work with Mr. Nazarian to tackle environmental issues both in his district and statewide,” said David Allgood, Political Director of the California League of Conservation Voters.

The record of the votes is available on the CLCV website at www.ecovote.org/legislator/assemblymember-adrin-nazarian

Nazarian represents the 46th Assembly District, serving the San Fernando Valley communities of Hollywood Hills, Lake Balboa, North Hills, North Hollywood, Panorama City, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Toluca Lake, Universal City, Van Nuys, and Valley Village.
