A leading environmental group gave a local Sunnyside representative a perfect score in their annual report card.
Earlier this week, Environmental Advocates Action gave State Senator Michael Gianaris a ‘100’ for helping shepherd environmental legislation in Albany.
Last year, the state legislature enacted the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, which reduces statewide greenhouse gas emissions, improves resiliency efforts, ensures local job creation through energy transition and controls the regressive impacts of climate change mitigation.
“When the environment needs protecting, Senator Gianaris is always there,” said Peter Iwanowicz, executive director of EAA. “He shows up and does the work–that is clearly reflected in his perfect score.
“We are grateful for his continued efforts to make New York a national environmental leader.”
