Endorsed by LCV to tackle the climate crisis

Betting that climate change will be at the top of voters' minds in 2022, the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund made its first round of endorsements, backing nine incumbent senators--all Democrats.

The endorsements, first shared with CQ Roll Call, went to Michael Bennet of Colorado, Alex Padilla of California, Patty Murray of Washington, Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada, Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire, Brian Schatz of Hawaii, Raphael Warnock of Georgia and Ron Wyden of Oregon.

"Voters really are demanding that the administration, the Senate, and the House do something about investing in clean energy jobs and tackling the climate crisis in 2022," said the vice president of governmental affairs for LCV Action Fund. Climate change has been growing in importance for voters over time, and a majority of registered voters said it was a very or somewhat important factor.

Got state agency to increase use of renewable energy

Alex was elected to the Los Angeles City Council as a political outsider at the age of 26. He fought to close and limit the expansion of the landfills that had plagued his community for so long, to clean up local air and water and to face climate change by requiring the city's biggest polluter, the Department of Water and Power, to dramatically increase renewable energy.

Slow down fracking until scientific study is completed

Excerpts from Legislative Counsel's Digest:

Status: Passed House, 54-20-4; passed Senate 29-8-2; State Sen. Padilla voted YES;.signed by Gov.Brown, 9/20/2013

OnTheIssues Explanation: "Fracking" extracts more oil and gas from otherwise non-productive wells. Controversies includes that fracking causes earthquakes (hence the "scientific study"), and issues about disposal of the large volumes of potentially toxic liquids used. This bill slows the implementation of fracking.
