NYLCV Statement on Legislative Chambers’ One-House Budgets

The New York League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement in response to the State Senate and State Assembly releasing their respective one-house budgets:

Julie Tighe, President of the New York League of Conservation Voters, said, “New York is on a path to a green recovery. With a $3 billion Environmental Bond Act, an expanded Environmental Protection Fund, a $500 million investment in clean water infrastructure, and legislation to reduce packaging waste, it is clear the environment is a priority for both chambers of our State Legislature. They know we can fight our climate crisis while creating green jobs with family-sustaining wages. We thank Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins, Speaker Heastie, Senator Kaminsky, and Assemblyman Englebright for their leadership and investing in a green future.”
