New York Needs the Environmental Bond Act

New Yorkers for Clean Water and Jobs, AECOM and Rebuild by Design hosted a legislative briefing about the economic benefits of the NYS Environmental Bond Act. A 2021 report by AECOM and Rebuild by Design analyzed the long-term economic benefits of investing $3 billion in projects that would help protect clean water, reduce pollution, conserve family farms, and reduce local climate risks. The report found that the Bond Act would create 65,000 jobs and support $6.7 billion in project spending, findings that were applauded by environmental advocates and labor and industry leaders.
