Act on Environmental Bills before NYS Legislators Leave Albany
New York’s legislators – the people you pay to represent your interests – are preparing to leave Albany for the rest of the year in just two weeks. And there are still a lot of environmental issues on the agenda that we need your help getting over the finish line. Environmental Advocates and our partners have helped secure enough support for the passage of three priority bills which would:
  • protect New Yorker’s from other states’ fracking waste;
  • ban tiny plastic microbeads that clog our waterways;
  • keep chemical companies from using toxics like arsenic and lead in children’s products.
It takes 32 votes to pass a bill in the Senate, and each of these bills has 32 or more cosponsors. That’s huge! But it’s all for nothing if industry gets its way and blocks them from becoming law.

Visit our Action Page ( and TAKE ACTION on one or all of these bills!

It's EASY and it lets your public officials know their actions are being watched and they are being held accountable. Our Action Page is set up so you can contact your elected officials in whatever way you are most comfortable.
