AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A Maine conservation group is grading lawmakers on their votes on some of the top environmental bills this legislative session.

Maine Conservation Voters will release their scorecard for the 2013 session on Thursday at the State House.

The group will be joined by a handful of Democratic and Republican lawmakers.

The group says the 27th annual conservation scorecard will grade lawmakers based on how they voted on environmental bills "affecting water quality, land conservation, fisheries, climate change and human health."

The group's Executive Director Maureen Drouin says the session "produced mixed results for Maine's environment."
