Online Meeting: Legislating a Price on Pollution to Pay for a Justice-based Transition to a Sustainable Economy

New York Business Roundtable on Carbon Tax
With President Trump withdrawing the US from the Paris climate accord, it becomes that much more critical for the states to lead.  We invite you to join us on Tuesday, June 6th at 4pm to learn about the national movement for carbon tax legislation, discuss a new legislative proposal for New York by NY Renews, and offer your business perspective on this important issue.
