Rep. Phil Miller Receives Perfect Rating from Environmental Group

The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) awarded State Representative Phil Miller a 100 percent rating for his support and advocacy of environmental initiatives in their 2011 Environmental Scorecard.

“I made a public commitment to improve air and water quality when I ran for office last winter so it is truly an honor to receive a 100 percent rating from the League of Conservation Voters in my first year at the Capitol,” said Miller.

Miller, a Democrat who is serving his first term representing Chester, Deep River, Essex, and Haddam in the General Assembly, is one of only 29 state representatives—less than 20% of the Connecticut House—to earn a rating of 100 percent.

The annual environmental scorecard grades state lawmakers based on how they vote on significant environmental legislation. This year the scorecard grades legislators’ votes on twelve bills that came up during the 2011 legislative session.

CTLCV Co-Chair David Bingham said of the legislators who received high scores, “despite the pressures of economic distress, they upheld policies that are critical to providing clean air and water and make Connecticut an inviting state to do business.”

Formed in 1998, the bipartisan CTLCV works on laws that affect Connecticut’s air, water, wildlife, open space, transportation, energy choices, and health.

State Representative Phil Miller is serving his first term representing the 36th Assembly District of Essex, Chester, Deep River and Haddam. He sits on the legislature’s Environment, Human Services, and Public Health Committees.
