The Florida Conservation Alliance joined the national League of Conservation Voters on Tuesday in releasing the 2011 National Environmental Scorecard, revealing scores for the Florida delegation in the first session of the 112th Congress, with South Florida Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Senator Bill Nelson being the only members to get a 100 percent rating from the environmental organizations.
The Alliance calls 2011 the most "anti-environmental session of the U.S. House of Representatives in history," but says that both the Democratic led Senate and President Obama provided adequate safeguards to insure that environmental protections remain largely unscathed.
Receiving the next highest grade was Tampa area Democrat Kathy Castor, who was rewarded with a 97 percent grade. Polk County Republican Dennis Ross tied for the lowest grade at 6 percent, while GOP U.S. Senator Marco Rubio also earned one of the lowest grades at 9 percent.
