If our environment is to be a true reflection of our values, we must regularly assess its quality, prioritize our efforts and measure our progress. This Environment and Energy Report Card is an important step in that direction. As federal regulations and state standards and priorities evolve or shift, the Report Card will be useful in setting and evaluating new benchmarks for performance. It also sets the stage for an upcoming series of citizen forums to gather public input on the environment statewide and leads up to an Environmental Congress to be held in 2013 involving citizens, public- and private-sector and nonprofit leaders. Together, the events encompass one of the most wide-ranging public discussions on the environment and energy in decades.
