How Does the Scorecard Work?
Since 1973, California Environmental Voters (formerly CLCV) has released our annual California Environmental Scorecard, which grades the California Legislature and Governor on their environmental and climate actions from the prior legislative year. For 50 years, the Scorecard has served as a key educational, transparency, and accountability resource for voters to get an insider’s view on how well their elected representatives are truly acting on climate.
** Update: The Governor’s 2023-24 budget proposal cuts at least $6 billion of the $54 billion in climate investments passed in 2022. The new budget will be finalized in June 2023.
