Virginia Chapter Sierra Club

Award Presentation with Senator Mamie Locke
Sandy Bottom Nature Park

Senator Mamie Locke (D-2) and Delegate Christopher Stolle (R-83) will be recognized as the patrons of companion resolutions HR16 and SR3. Their leadership on adaptation of Virginia’s coastal communities to climate change is arguably the most important piece of legislation enacted during the 2014 Legislative Session. Rising sea levels threaten the prosperity of Virginia's coastal communities, including Hampton Roads, ranked the second most vulnerable area nationwide to the impacts of a changing climate. The enacted resolution will establish a Joint Subcommittee tasked with making statewide recommendations for addressing recurrent flooding in the coastal areas of Virginia with short and long-term strategies.

The Sierra Club Virginia Chapter will recognize the contributions of a select few legislators. This year, the Club applauds nine individuals who introduced climate change or energy bills during the 2014 General Assembly Session. For more information, CLICK HERE.
