National Caucus of Environmental Legislators
- District of Columbia
The mission of the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators is to empower environmentally progressive state lawmakers by
- Sharing ideas and information on environmental issues, legislative initiatives, and regulatory actions
- Assisting each other on pro-active intiatives
- Sharing information on efforts to weaken existing laws or enact anti-environment proposals and
- Providing information on Federal actions which might affect state environmental programs or intiatives or otherwise affect environmental protection.
The goal of the NCEL is to organize pro-environment state legislators nation-wide, and to educate and inform these leaders on state and federal environmental issues and policies – the result of which will be enactment of sound environmental policy at the state level. The NCEL does not lobby for the enactment or defeat of any state or federal legislation.
