His efforts have been recognized by the League of Conservation Voters and the Sierra Club, he has received numerous environmental awards including being named "Conservationist of the Year," by the Adirondack Council... Senator Marcellino's environmental accomplishments include being the prime sponsor of the landmark Brownfield/Superfund Reform Law, the Pesticide Notification Law and the Nation's first law phasing out the groundwater contaminate MTBE from gasoline."

He was the prime sponsor of the "Stephanie's Law" which made it a felony to engage in video voyeurism, the Unpaid Wages Prohibition Act, the disability registry that provides vital information to aid in rescues and evacuations, and the permanent COLA bill, granting retirees from state service annual cost-of-living adjustments.

Scorecards

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of New York scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
