Frank Chopp: State Representative #2, District 43
As leader of the House of Representatives, Rep. Chopp has overseen two of the most successful legislative sessions in history for the state's environmental agenda. His name has become virtually synonymous with ground-breaking environmental initiatives.
Chopp united Democrats behind legislation setting automobile efficiency standards, initiating Puget Sound cleanup efforts, and mandating recycling of electronic waste. In addition, he established an Energy Freedom Fund and enacted a biofuels standard to promote energy independence, cleaner air, and new economic opportunities for Washington farmers.
