NJ delegation gets high marks from environmental group

New Jersey’s congressional delegation got high marks from the League of Conservation Voters Wednesday.

The environmental group released its annual scorecards Wednesday morning, and while the state’s four first-term members in the House have yet to earn a rating, the mostly-Democratic senior members received good grades.

Both Sen. Bob Menendez and Sen. Cory Booker earned 100% ratings from the group. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman earned the next-highest mark with a 94% rating.

Reps. Frank Pallone, Donald Payne Jr. and Bill Pascrell were each rated 91%. Ratings for other Democrats were similar: Rep. Albio Sires got 89%, Rep. Donald Norcross got 86% and Rep. Josh Gottheimer got 80%.

The state congressional delegation’s lone Republican member, Chris Smith, earned a 60% rating.
