WASHINGTON – In its national report card released today, the Sierra Club gave the Washington state delegation five As, three Fs and one C.

For the Sierra Club, a national environmentalist organization, the only middle-of-the roader is Republican Rep. Dave Reichert, who earned the C. On Capitol Hill, he has clearly established himself as a moderate, often in step with Democrats on environmental issues.

The Sierra Club gave top marks to Democrats Norm Dicks, Adam Smith, Rick Larsen, Jay Inslee, and Jim McDermott. It gave failing grades to Republicans Doc Hastings, Cathy McMorris-Rodgers and Jaime Herrera-Beutler.

Here’s a look at the Washington state report card. And here’s the national report card.
