League of Conservation Voters Grades Bush's Environmental Record To-Date

League president to participate in Live Chat today with Washington Post.

Published: 24-Jan-2002

WASHINGTON — As President Bush continues to speak of the importance of protecting the environment while America grows its economy, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) is set to hold him accountable for his words as well as his actions with the release of its Presidential Report Card on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2002.

The 32-page review grades the Bush administration on every important facet of its environmental record in its first year, from administration appointments to environment and energy proposals. The report card, similar to one released after the first year of the Clinton administration, strips away the administration’s pro-environment claims to reveal a pattern of activity that has undermined the very environmental policies Americans want strengthened.

The report card is intended to guide citizens', opinion leaders', and policy makers' analysis of the administration’s environmental announcements over the coming weeks, including the State of the Union address and the release of the 2003 federal budget.

LCV’s release of the report card will be highlighted by a Web chat with LCV President Deb Callahan on Washingtonpost.com at noon on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2002. To take part in this online discussion or to ask a question about the report card, simply go to Live Online and select the chat featuring Deb Callahan. Once there, you have the option to submit a question for the chat; it’s as easy as typing your city, state, and question. If you are unable to join us for the chat, a transcript will be posted to our site shortly afterwards.

Full Presidential Report Card information will also be available online at League of Conservation Voters Web site.
