Rep. Grier Martin spoke today at a press conference recognizing legislators with a 100% record on environmental issues by Environment NC. Joined by Rep. Deborah Ross, Rep. Garland Pierce, Rep. Jennifer Weiss, Rep. Marian McLawhorn, and Rep. Pricey Harrison, Martin talked about fighting for clean air and safe drinking water and the importance of green jobs to North Carolina’s economy.
“These ‘environmental heroes’ showed that protecting the state’s air, water, and open spaces is still a top priority for North Carolinians in districts all across the state,” said Margaret Hartzell, Policy Advocate with Environment North Carolina.
While several legislators received a 100% rating, over half of the General Assembly received a score of 0%.
In addition to his 100% ranking this year, Martin has a lifetime voting record of 98% from Environment NC and 95% from the NC League of Conservation Voters. He received the League of Conservation Voters’ “Defender of the Environment Award” in 2010.
