Representative Fagan turned a local tragedy into a win for pedestrians. A lack of sidewalks in East Portland has long meant that many walking routes are not just unsafe, but downright dangerous. After a 5 year old girl was fatally struck by a car on SE 136th Avenue, Fagan — a new mother — brought together her colleagues and pushed to fund sidewalk construction for East Portland’s busy streets. On the last day of the 2013 session, she got it: $3.6 million to make streets safer for our kids and families.

OLCV Scores


Because they are so important, SB 488, SB 838, and SB 692 - OCN's Priorities for a Healthy Oregon - are double-counted in the scores. HB 3162, equally important and part of an OLCV Special Focus on Toxics, is also double-counted in the scores.

About OLCV

About the Scorecard

For more than 40 years, OLCV has protected Oregon's natural legacy. An essential part of our work is holding our elected officials accountable. The OLCV Environmental Scorecard is not only one of our most important accountability tools, but also a tradition. The first scorecard was published in 1973.

By sharing how each member of the Legislature voted on the most critical conservation bills, we help Oregonians understand whether legislators listened to their constituents, or if they listened to special interest groups instead. It also serves as a summary of environmental bills and includes special recognition of the legislative champions.
