Climate and Community Protection Act

A coalition of environmental groups are supporting the Climate and Community Protection Act, which will establish greenhouse gas limits for NYS, add green jobs to the NYS economy, move forward on certain environmental justice initiatives and switch NYS to 50% clean, renewable energy by 2030. 

NY Renews has a handout on this legislation and the Environmental Advocates of NY also has a great explanation of the bill. Gotham Gazette covered the Green New Deal in NYS and Gothamist covered Cuomo’s stance here.
