Rep. Perruso Chosen as State Lead for National Caucus of Environmental Legislators
Honolulu, Hawaiʻi – The National Caucus of Environmental Legislators has selected Representative Amy Perruso as the 2021 Hawaiʻi State Lead. This position reflects a continued sense of dedication to environmental issues in Hawaiʻi and a demonstrated leadership role within the Caucus.
Representative Perruso (D-46, Wahiawā, Whitmore Village, Launani Valley) has been an active member of NCEL for two years and is committed to addressing climate crisis in ways that center around working families and social justice.
As a State Lead, Representative Perruso will assist in advancing environmental issues in the state and have a prestigious leadership role in the Caucus by coordinating relevant in-state events and introducing colleagues to NCEL.
“State Leads are a vital embodiment of the thriving, diverse NCEL network,” said Jeff Mauk, Executive Director of NCEL. “Led by legislators, this Caucus calls on State Leads to mobilize their commitment to effective environmental policy by engaging their home states, while exchanging knowledge with like-minded legislators across the country.”
Created by and for state legislators, the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that organizes over 1,000 environmentally-committed state legislators from all 50 states and both major parties. NCEL provides venues and opportunities for lawmakers to share ideas and collaborate on their environmental priorities.
