Conservation Voters release legislator rankings

Written by 

The North Carolina League of Conservation Voters has released its 2013 scorecard for North Carolina legislators, a number based on the legislators’ voting record on key environmental issues. 

This year, a record number of legislators — 82 — earned a score of zero. Among them were Sen. Jim Davis, R-Franklin; Rep. Michele Presnell, R-Burnsville; and Rep. Roger West, R-Marble. Previously, West and Davis had seen somewhat higher scores of 30 and 10, respectively. This is Presnell’s first term. Rep. Joe Sam Queen, D-Waynesville, earned a score of 89, a jump from his previous high of 82.
