City lawmakers get top marks on Sierra Club scorecard 

When it comes to the environment, your San Francisco lawmakers get straight-As. Mostly.

The Sierra Club California just released its annual report card of the state’s senators and assemblymembers, judging them based on how consistently they voted the Sierra Club’s way on the year’s environmental legislation.

This year, the organization looked at fifteen pieces of legislation, from water conservation to offshore oil drilling.

Toeing the environmental organization’s line were state Sen. Leland Yee and state Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, who each voted the Sierra Club’s way on 14 out of the 15 bills – a score that Yee declared was an A in a press release his office issued today. Just behind were state Sen. Mark Leno and San Mateo’s Assemblyman Jerry Hill each scored 13 out of 15.

Lagging behind was San Francisco state Assemblywoman Fiona Ma, who voted Sierra Club’s way on 11 out of 15 pieces of legislation.
