WIN: NYS Legislature Passes Most Ambitious Climate Legislation in US

The NYS legislature has passed the most ambitious climate legislation in the US including such goals as carbon-free electricity by 2040 and a net-zero carbon economy by 2050.

To meet the goals of this bill, New Yorkers will need to step up in renewable and efficiency projects. We cannot let our state fall short of the stated targets for lack of will, and we must look first to our capable NYS businesses if we want to create jobs and strengthen our economy.

Congrats to all in the fight!
