Climate Change is on the NY Ballot

🌏 Proposition 1: The Environmental Bond Act 🌏

In November 2022, NY State will vote on Prop 1 – Clean Water, Clean Air, and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act of 2022 – a ballot measure that was authorized by the legislature to protect clean drinking water, modernize infrastructure and revitalize the economy, improve public health and safety, and conserve natural resources.

If approved, the bond act authorizes $4.2 billion to address these challenges. Research shows that money spent mitigating emissions and adapting to our climate future now is far less than the cost of inaction.

This is a
critical investment in our clean energy future.

👉FLIP the ballot over, and please vote YES on PROP 1!
