Rep. Luis Arroyo is proud to receive the 100% “Environmental Champion” rating from the Illinois Environmental Council (IEC) for his voting record on behalf of environmental laws and policies.
The Illinois Environmental Council Education Fund engages in education and outreach and provides a forum for environmentalists. The Illinois Environmental Council serves as the environmental community’s eyes, ears and voice in Springfield. The two organizations – collectively known as IEC – work together to ensure a more healthful environment for Illinois residents.
Since its founding in 1975 by a group of dedicated grassroots environmentalists, IEC has sponsored issue advocacy campaigns and projects by allowing environmental organizations to pool their resources and create a higher profile for environmental issues. Today, IEC represents 60 environmental and community organizations and nearly 300 individuals from throughout Illinois.
IEC promotes sound environmental laws and policies. They encourage decision makers in the private sector to go beyond minimum standards to establish new environmental best practices and they credit those who lead, innovate, and inspire others to follow their example.
