In the 2017 legislative session, she supported a host of NYLCV priority bills including the disclosure of hazardous toxins in children’s products, heavier regulations on shipments of petroleum on the Hudson and lowering the threshold for elevated blood lead levels to protect communal health. She is dedicated to creating a full renewable energy portfolio, expanding the deployment of solar in coordination with programs like Community Solar NY and improving initiatives for solar and wind storage. She additionally has advocated for upgraded bus service systems to provide accessible mass transit throughout the state.
