Moulton Receives Environmental Champion Award

February 26th, 2018

“Moulton has consistently stood on the side of our environment, our health, and our future”

Salem, MA –  Today, Environment Massachusetts, the statewide environmental advocacy organization, presented its Environmental Champion award to Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) in recognition of his 100 percent environmental voting record in 2017.

“I am proud to be receiving the Environmental Champion Award from Environment Massachusetts,” said Moulton. “Environmental protection and economic growth go hand in hand. Our district’s history and economic livelihood is inextricably connected to our oceans and natural resources. I’m committed to doing everything I can to create forward-looking policies and advocate for smart, effective regulations that will ensure a healthier environment for future generations.”

Moulton’s 100 percent score on Environment Massachusetts’ scorecard is based on 32 roll call votes in 2017, on legislation related to clean air, clean water, renewable energy, public lands, climate change, and funding for environmental agencies.

“We are pleased to recognize Congressman Seth Moulton for his environmental leadership,” said Ben Hellerstein, State Director for Environment Massachusetts. “Congressman Moulton has consistently stood on the side of our environment, our health, and our future. At a time when our core environmental protections are under attack, we’re glad to have such a staunch champion in Congressman Moulton.”

In addition to his pro-environment voting record, Moulton recently co-led a letter with Senator Ed Markey opposing the Trump administration’s proposed offshore drilling plan. All 11 members of Massachusetts’ congressional delegation signed on to Moulton and Markey’s letter, which urged Governor Charlie Baker to stand up against drilling off of Massachusetts’ coast.

“With special interests lining up to dismantle protections for our air, our water, and the places we love, we need to stand up and fight back,” said Hellerstein. “We’re grateful for Congressman Moulton’s partnership as we defend our environment and work toward a cleaner, healthier future.”

Environment Massachusetts is the statewide, citizen-funded advocacy group working for a cleaner, greener, healthier future.
