Defender of the Year

In her time as Speaker of the House, Speaker Kotek – known for her pragmatism and authenticity - has repeatedly stood up for Oregon’s natural legacy. She’s pushed behind the scenes to make bad bills better and she’s ensured that the right people are at the table when environmental issues are discussed. Perhaps best of all, Speaker Kotek is committed to passing the best public policy and has proven that she will not lower that standard in the face of political pressure.

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

The Oregon League of Conservation Voters is a non-partisan organization with a simple mission: to pass laws that protect Oregon's environmental legacy, elect pro-environment candidates to office, and hold all of our elected officials accountable.

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.
