From the Morning Memo:

Democrats in the state Senate’s mainline conference received high marks from the Environmental Advocates of New York on rating green issues facing the state.

Democratic lawmakers in touting the scores tied their environmental platform to a broader effort in opposing President Donald Trump’s policies seeping into the state level.

“I’m proud that my score and that of our conference highlights our commitment to protecting our environment and natural resources across New York State,” said Senate Minority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins. “While Donald Trump and his Republican allies continue to roll back environmental protections, it is crucial that New York State steps up to protect our environment and serve as an example to the rest of the nation.”

Stewart-Cousins received a score of 100 from the group. Sen. Todd Kaminsky, the ranking member of the Senate Environmental Conservation Committee, also received a perfect score. The average conference score was 93.

“I have made sustaining and protecting our environment a priority,” Kaminsky said. “We have a responsibility to ensure clean air and drinking water and to promote renewable energy for Long Island’s future generations. I am proud to have supported and advocated for each of these initiatives.”
