2016 Honor Roll

The following Indiana state representatives and state senators deserve commendation for showing leadership on matters that would advance the cause of environmental sustainability in Indiana. Our recognition of these lawmakers is specific to their leadership on key bills. Some recognized lawmakers are excellent on some environmental matters and, unfortunately, not so positive on other environmental matters. Furthermore, our listing of these lawmakers does not constitute a political endorsement; HEC is not a 501(c)(4) organization, and does not endorse candidates.

These caveats noted, we again express our appreciation to these lawmakers for making the right calls on the below issues!
