LCV’s 2022 National Scorecard: How does the Michigan delegation stack up?

LCV’s 2022 National Scorecard: How does the Michigan delegation stack up?

Holding elected officials accountable for their votes is one of the most important ways Michigan LCV and our national partners LCV succeed in keeping the environment on the agenda in Lansing and in Washington D.C. Yesterday the League of Conservation Voters released their annual scorecard which tracked every vote on the national level that had an environmental impact. 


Michigan’s Congressional Delegation received some high scores and some not so high scores. We are fortunate to have champions that helped us pass through climate investments like the Inflation Reduction Act, and defend our environment by rejecting Senator Manchin’s permitting reform bill. As for the lowest scores- there is a reason we work hard during election season too. 

U.S. Senate:

Senator Debbie Stabenow (D) – 100 percent

Senator Gary Peters (D) – 96 percent

U.S. House:

Representative Debbie Dingell (D) – 100 percent 

Representative Rashida Tlaib (D) – 100 percent 

Representative Andy Levin (D)* – 100 percent 

Representative Brenda Lawrence (D)* – 95 percent

Representative Dan Kildee (D) – 95 percent

Representative Elissa Slotkin (D) – 95 percent 

Representative Haley Stevens (D) – 95 percent 

Representative Fred Upton (R)* – 42 percent

Representative Peter Meijer (R)* –  32 percent 

Representative Jack Bergman (R) – 11 percent

Representative Bill Huizenga (R) – 11 percent

Representative John Moolenaar (R) – 11 percent 

Representative Tim Walberg (R) – 5 percent

Representative Lisa McClain (R) – 0 percent 

*No longer in office

Michigan LCV’s Bentley Johnson stated the following in a press release on the scorecard:

Last session, members of Congress voted on the most consequential legislation in history to transition our country to clean, renewable energy, create high-paying jobs, save Americans money, and address the climate crisis with the Inflation Reduction Act,” said Bentley Johnson, Federal Government Affairs Director for the Michigan League of Conservation Voters. “In 2022, Michigan had nine Congressional members take a stand for cleaner air and water and a livable future for our kids and grandkids. Unfortunately, many other members of Michigan’s delegation sided with corporate polluters rather than the people of Michigan. The LCV scorecard provides a clear, impartial way for Michiganders to understand what side their lawmaker falls on. It is a tool to hold our elected leaders accountable.”
