Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) named Rep. Jonathan Steinberg (D-136) a “Clean Energy Champion” thanks to his leadership on increasing Connecticut’s investment in renewable energy sources. CTLCV previously endorsed Steinberg thanks to his commitment to key environmental priorities. Earlier this week, the United Nations issued an alarming report urging the need for action on climate change within the next decade. Here in Connecticut, Steinberg is at the forefront of clean energy policy to reduce our carbon footprint while growing our economy.
“Rep. Steinberg knows that clean energy brings jobs to Connecticut, lowers electric rates for homeowners and small businesses, and helps us win the fight to reverse climate change,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “He worked hard to make sure Connecticut doubled its investment in renewable energy, and was one of the first lawmakers to sign our Clean Energy for All pledge, putting Connecticut on the path to 100% clean energy by 2050. With so much at stake in this election, we at CTLCV are doing everything we can to champion lawmakers who put our environment—and our future—first.”
“Rep. Steinberg has been—and continues to be—one of the League’s primary partners in advocating for sensible, effective legislation protecting our state’s environment,” said Ken Bernhard, CTLCV Board Member and former State Representative. “With good reason, the Board voted unanimously to endorse his re-election. We hope his constituents will send him back to Hartford.”
