This year’s scorecard examined 17 bills in the Senate and 16 bills in the Assembly that were of significant importance to the environment and conservation efforts in New York State, addressing everything from clean water and clean energy to public health and The State Environmental Scorecard will tell you which NYLCV priorities were passed and which were left on the table.
And while not scored, it also looks at the state budget, which produced some of this year’s most significant environmental wins, including the $4.2 billion Environmental Bond Act, which is on the ballot this November.
