To protect the timber industry, Betsy Johnson repeatedly voted against climate change policy

During her long tenure as a Democratic lawmaker, unaffiliated candidate for governor Betsy Johnson amassed a voting record that puts her firmly on the side of timber companies and big industrial employers when it comes to environment and climate-related bills.

She also established a reputation for using her considerable influence to go after environmental regulators, sink nominees to natural resource commissions she sees as too environmentally friendly and support business interests that have contributed heavily to her campaign.
