2023 National Environmental ScorecardSenators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley both received perfect 100% scores. Thank Senators Wyden and MerkleyThree of our U.S. Representatives received perfect 100% scores: Bonamici, Hoyle, and Salinas! And our all-star climate champ, Rep. Blumenauer will retire after this term with a 95% lifetime score! On the other hand, Rep. Bentz received a whopping 0% (yikes), and Rep. Chavez-Deremer received a disappointing 31%.  Email your U.S. Representative.

Stepping Back: After three years as co-lead of CAT, I’m stepping back from that leadership role. I have thoroughly enjoyed leadership and I’m proud of what I’ve helped accomplish, but it’s time for new ideas and approaches.  I’ll stay engaged with CAT and continue to send out CATweek.
