ALBANY, NY (SBN) — In November of 2022, New York voters will have the chance to approve the largest Environmental Bond Act in the history of the state. Passed as part of the state’s 2021-to-2022 budget, reauthorization of the Environmental Bond Act will provide three-billion-dollars to upgrade water and sewer infrastructure, improve parks, and help communities around the state prepare for more frequent floods, rising seas and more extreme temperatures. SBN Correspondent Steve Lubetkin reports on the Bond Act’s significance.
