Environment

Senator Breslin is committed to protecting our environment. He has achieved a perfect score on the New York League of Conservation Voters Environmental Scorecard for the past three years. He has voted to ban plastic bags, worked with community members and local elected officials to switch to renewable energy in the Sheridan Avenue steam plant and along with Senate Democrats, passed the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act.

 

To cut carbon emissions Senator Breslin will:

  • Support initiatives to expand and electrify public transportation

  • Work to increase access to solar energy

  • Vote for the adoption of a low carbon fuel standard

To reduce waste Senator Breslin will:

  • Vote for legislation that bans expanded polystyrene foam (“styrofoam”), single-use food containers and harmful chemicals that eventually end up in our water supply

  • Advocate for the passage of the Right to Repair Bill, a bill that would reduce waste and enable repair industry growth

To protect the health of our water, land, and air Senator Breslin will:

  • Vote for legislation that prevents the overuse of antibiotics and pesticides in farming

  • Continue to support funding for parks and open spaces

  • Vote to establish maximum contaminant levels of PFCAs and PFSAs in public drinking water

 

A commitment to our future generations requires participation from all sectors of our State. Senator Breslin is certain our efforts addressing climate change will positively affect public health, the economy and technology and that New York State will continue to set an example of the rest of the country.
