Governor Andrew M. Cuomo stood with environmental leaders today to announce a campaign to pass the $3 Billion Restore Mother Nature Bond Act in the FY 2021 Budget. If ultimately approved by the voters in November, the Bond Act will fund critical environmental restoration projects in every corner of the state to ensure New York is able to withstand the threat of more intense and frequent storms fueled by climate change. The Bond Act is part of an unprecedented $33 billion commitment to fight climate change over the next five years. Governor Cuomo is also campaigning to ban single-use Styrofoam food containers and packing materials in the budget. In addition, he is pushing to renew record funding for the Environmental Protection Fund and for clean water infrastructure, as well as product stewardship initiatives to promote recycling of mattresses and carpets.
