Environmental Legislation

During each two-year legislative session, Sierra Club staff and citizen lobbyists engage in the legislative process. One of the ways we influence the outcome of votes on environmental legislation is to issue Position Statements and Floor Letters. 

Sierra Club issues Position Statements to educate lawmakers in advance of a vote on a particular bill, during our citizen Lobby Days and when bills get a committee hearing. We issue Floor Letters or Position Statements to all of the members of the House or Senate on the day we expect a bill to get a vote in either chamber. Once we let lawmakers know how we want them to vote on a particular bill or package of bills, the results of the vote may be included in our Legislative Scorecards.
