Synopsis:

ENVIRONMENTAL BOND ACT of 2022

CLEAN WATER, CLEAN AIR, AND GREEN JOBS

There's an environmental bond act on the ballot on Nov. 8th We'll discuss the details - good and bad - with Paul Presendieu, a Board Director and Co-Chair of the Environmental Justice Forum of the New York State Association of Conservation Commissions (NYSACC) and Carli Fraccarolli, State Policy Coordinator for Scenic Hudson.

There has been a lot of effort of activists over the years to make a more environmentally sustainable world. It looks like maybe the NYS government is finally coming around. Have they heard us? Is it still corporate-focused? This is just one way to mitigate climate chaos. There is a ballot question on the November ballot, so look on the back or bottom of your New York ballot to make your choice.

Today we discuss the CLEAN WATER, CLEAN AIR, AND GREEN JOBS Environmental Bond Act of 2022.

The proposal would allow the State to borrow up to $4.2 billion and sell an equal amount of state bonds for capital projects intended to “preserve, enhance, and restore New York's natural resources and reduce the impact of climate change”. The projects would include

• restoration and flood risk reduction,

• open space land conservation and recreation,

• climate change mitigation, and

• water quality improvement and resilient infrastructure.
