RELEASE: Krueger, Zebrowski To Introduce Amended Tropical Deforestation Legislation

Posted on March 19, 2024

"As I said when the Governor vetoed this bill in December, this is not some esoteric issue for tree-huggers – the climate crisis and the biodiversity crisis threaten the very survival of human civilization," said Sen. Krueger. "That is why we will be reintroducing the bill. We have addressed the Governor's concerns as they were expressed to us, and we are confident that the TREES Act can not only be successfully implemented, but will enhance New York's global role as an environmental leader. I look forward to sending it back to the Governor's desk as soon as possible." Learn More (External Link) >>
