Watchdog of the Year

Senator Dingfelder would easily be named Environmental Champion of the Decade. An expert on water policy, a veteran of numerous energy bills, and a steadfast defender of land use and wildlife protections, she used her position as Chair of the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee to kill bad bills and shepherd good ones through the legislative process. Further, Dingfelder used her expertise and experience to transform bad bills into better ones — and she kept a careful eye on the budget process as a member of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Natural Resources.

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 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.
