Zinke's votes ranked 3% by League of Conservation Voters

Eco Watch - [Ryna Zinke] is a 23-year Navy Seal veteran and fifth-generation Montanan who was elected to the House in 2014 after serving six years in the state senate...

In his first term as a Congressman he has voted to:
Weaken controls on air and water pollution in national parks

Lift the federal ban on crude oil exports

Undermine protections for endangered species

De-fund efforts to clean up Chesapeake Bay

Weaken the Antiquities Act by limiting the president's ability to designate new national monuments
In 2015 the League of Conservation Voters gave Zinke a bottom-of-the-barrel 3 percent score for his environmental record. He would have scored zero but for his one positive vote against cutting off funding for the Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
