More about the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act
Called "one of the world’s most ambitious climate plans" by the New York Times, the recently passed Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act offers tremendous opportunities for the North Country's clean energy sector and our local economies. ANCA, partners and regional stakeholders are following the Act and the economic impacts the bill may have on our communities.
We are pleased to announce that Amanda Lefton (pictured), New York State’s First Assistant Secretary of Energy and the Environment, and Mark Lowery, Climate Policy Analyst for the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, will be presenting about the CLCPA and engaging with meeting attendees over our questions, concerns, hopes and plans for the future.
For more information about the CLCPA, read this recent blog on the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) website. The legislative bill can be viewed on the New York State Assembly web page.
