Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Representative Raghib Allie-Brennan (D) to represent the 2nd House District of the CT General Assembly including the towns of Bethel, Danbury, Newtown, and Redding.
Representative Allie-Brennan has earned a perfect 100% rating on CTLCV’s Environmental Scorecard for the last three years.
“2022 was a phenomenal year for climate action. These wins would not be possible without lawmakers like Raghib Allie-Brennan, who worked hard to pass legislation to reduce pollution from transportation, and who are continually looking to improve the environmental policies of our state,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director.
Raghib Allie-Brennan brought critical pieces of environmental legislation to the State House floor in the recent legislative session. This year, he championed the Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy Program (CPACE), which offers a tool to pay for zero-emission vehicle infrastructure and resiliency measures to address the climate crisis. He also helped secure wins for our state’s most significant environmental wins this year, the CT Clean Air Act and the Climate Change Mitigation Act.
In 2021, he pushed for passage of legislation to ban single-use plastic bags, and helped to pass CT’s landmark recycling law, known as the “Bottle Bill.”
Looking ahead, Representative Allie-Brennan’s work to restrict the use of the toxic chemical known as PFAS will continue, as will his work to improve our state’s outdated Environmental Justice laws.
“Raghib Allie-Brennan is a young, enthusiastic, and committed lawmaker who effectively advocates for environmental rights. We need him at the Capital to push for strong environmental policies, and to call for state investments that tackle climate change,” said Brown.
