Senator Anwar Achieves 100% Score on Environmental Issues

HARTFORD – State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) today received a score of 100% from the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) for his support of environmental public policy bills during last year’s 2021 legislative session.

The CTLCV released its annual scorecard today (, ranking all Connecticut legislators on their support or opposition to a variety of pro-environmental legislation designed to protect and improve Connecticut’s air, soil and water for generations to come.

“We rely on clean air, clean water and fresh soil in our daily lives. Protecting our natural resources is vital to ensure our state retains its high quality of life for residents,” said Sen. Anwar. “I’m proud that my colleagues and I were able to support expansion of recycling, restricting hazardous pollutants and emphasizing new approaches to energy storage that will reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. I’m looking forward to supporting more legislation protecting our environment during this legislative session.”

The CTLCV says its biggest legislative wins last session were:

  • SB 1037 Modernizing and Expanding the “Bottle Bill”
  • SB 837 Restricting Toxic PFAS in Consumer Packaging and Firefighting Foam
  • SB 356 Energy Retrofits in Affordable Housing
  • SB 925 Wildlife Trafficking
  • SB 952 Energy Storage
  • SB 999 Workforce Development Programs for Renewable Energy
  • HB 6503 Composting
  • HJ 53 Long Island Sound Blue Plan

“We urge lawmakers to use this document as a framework for what is still urgently needed to address climate change, and to make significant and lasting investments in our state’s environment,” said CTLCV Executive Director Lori Brown.

“All the available science proves that we are in a climate emergency. Lawmakers need to ramp- up their efforts to make the environment a priority this year,” said Megan Macomber, CTLCV Policy Advocate. “This is a critical year for legislators to rally their colleagues and push through bills that were stalled last year.”

For more than two decades, the CTLCV’s annual Environmental Scorecard rates state legislators on key environmental priorities each year. The CTLCV grades lawmakers on a scale of 0 – 100 based on how they vote on key environmental bills in committees, the House, and the Senate. Their final score represents an average of their votes on those specific bills.

This is the second 100% score Sen. Anwar has received, following similar results in the CTLCV’s 2019 scorecard.
