Most Texas members of Congress fail to defend our environment and our families’ health

Members of the Lone Star State's congressional delegation voted to support environmental protections only 28% of the time on average, according to a new scorecard from Environment Texas. The scorecard evaluates the state's 2 U.S. senators and 36 U.S. representatives on 32 key environmental votes. While Senators John Conryn and Ted Cruz both scored 0%, Texas can be proud of 3 representatives who scored 100% — Joaquin Castro, Lloyd Doggett, and Beto O'Rourke.
