How many turtles did your Rep get?
The Sierra Club - Hawaii branch came out yesterday with their bi-annual Legislature Environmental Scorecard for 2007-2008. Based on the Sierra Club's own environment-friendly criteria and analyses of voting records, each lawmaker was given a ranking, a percentage, a grade, and turtles.
Congratulations to Rep. Hermina Morita, Chair of the House Committee on Energy and Environmental Protection, for being the only lawmaker in the entire legislature to receive a perfect score. Rep. Morita received the number one ranking in the House, an A+, 100% score, and four turtles. (She's also pretty, nice, smart, and loves kids - don't hate her.)
Also getting A's were Rep. Mele Carroll (87%, A, four turtles), Rep. Scott Saiki (86%, A, four turtles), Rep. Lyla Berg (86%, A, three turtles), Rep. Cynthia Thielen (85%, A-, four turtles), Rep. Della Au Belatti (80%, A-, three turtles), and Rep. Maile Shimabukuro (79%, A-, three turtles).
