Over the next few weeks, the Climate Action Council (CAC) will be holding a series of public hearings to determine the State's energy policies. The CAC was established by the Governor to determine energy policy and how the state can reach the climate goals that they established. While some of their proposals are good ideas, many are being proposed before the State - and particularly New York City - has alternative sources for energy.
On Tuesday, the first hearing will be held in the Bronx. We need all of our members to show up and let them know that we do not support a plan that will endanger the residents of NYC and Westchester County by cutting back on power generation currently provided by Local 1-2 members. Before the hearing, we need our members to do a few things.
