NYS Environmental Fund "Call-In" Day
Keep protecting New York. Restore our Environmental Protection Fund.
On Tuesday, May 11, join thousands of New Yorkers calling the NYS Senate & Assembly in support of restoring the Environmental Protection Fund.
Governor Paterson has cut funding for the state’s environmental agencies and parks to the bone. He cut $69 million from the Environmental Protection Fund, which protects the things we love most in New York State - our parks and zoos, our drinking water, natural areas and farmland, and much more.
It’s not too late for the Legislature to restore the EPF this year. Call Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, Senate Leader John Sampson, and your Assemblymember & Senator. Join our friends at Citizens Campaign for the Environment, We Love New York, and thousands of other New Yorkers on May 11 for EPF Call-In Day. We need your help to restore the EPF and keep vital programs that protect our land, air, and water.
Tips for calling:
•State your name & where you live.
•Tell them you support restoring the Environmental Protection Fund to $222 million.
•Tell them why restoring the EPF is important to you.
