BREAKING NEWS! NYS Assembly Approves Bill to Slash Carbon Emissions!

Members of PUSH Buffalo and other area social justice groups rallied in Albany New York yesterday to show support for the passage of a strong energy bill that would require New York State to drastically cut carbon emissions by 2050 - this bill passed in the state assembly!

The legislation, called the New York State Climate and Community Protection Act, is also notable for its emphasis on environmental and economic justice, according to the bill's advocates. It aims to "prioritize the safety and health of disadvantaged communities" and "it creates good jobs and protects workers and communities," a memo by lawmakers said.
