Posted: September 27, 2019 | Senator Diamond

AUGUSTA — Sen. Bill Diamond, D-Windham, earned a perfect score from the Maine Conservation Voters for his votes to preserve Maine’s rich natural resources, invest in clean, renewable energy and protect the public from harmful chemicals.

“We all want clean air and water, and enjoy living in a place with such a strong outdoor heritage,” said Sen. Diamond. “I’m proud to do my part to protect Maine’s environment.”

Sen. Diamond supported a number of initiatives to promote, protect and preserve Maine’s environment in the most recent legislative session. In addition to supporting all the initiatives scored by Maine Conservation Voters, he also serves on the Joint Standing Committee on Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry, which handled a number of issues related to forests, farms and conservation.

The Maine Conservation Voters scored six key initiatives debated by the legislature this year, including the Land for Maine’s Future Bond, which was the only initiative proposal on the scorecard that didn’t pass. All 21 Senate Democrats received perfect scores for their environmental record.
