NJ delegation gets high marks from environmental group

By Nikita Biryukov, February 27 2019 11:39 am

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.
