New York State’s 2015-2016 budget is out on the street, and it’s getting pretty high marks from environmentalists. To see how Environmental Advocates rates this year’s spending plan, check out the YouTube video after the jump. It’s only 3 minutes long!
For those who can’t be bothered to watch the video, the main takeaway is disappointment about raiding the state’s carbon pollution fund, know as RGGI (pronounced “Reggie”) to add to the general fund. This could seriously slow down our transition to clean energy and zero emissions. If this seems counter to our state’s future energy and climate trajectory, please let the Governor’s office know how you feel!
