Andrew Cuomo: Commit to a greener future for our children & grandchildren

New York State boasts some of the most magnificent natural resources, vistas, lakes, rivers and landscapes. The Adirondack Park is a world-class tourism destination for recreational opportunities with breathtaking scenery and abundant wildlife. The Finger Lakes host pristine waters and expansive rolling hills with charming wineries. Long Island boasts stunning beaches and Western New York, majestic waterfalls. It is vital that we commit to a greener future to preserve these natural beauties for our children and grandchildren.

Throughout his tenure, Governor Cuomo has underscored his vision to promote responsible stewardship of our natural resources, creating a cleaner and healthier environment, improving our resiliency against extreme weather, accelerating robust growth in the clean energy economy, and improving energy affordability.

Andrew Cuomo: Water policy to protect environment and business interests

The preservation and protection of New York's water resources is vital to the state's residents, farmers and businesses. This law will enhance the state's ability to manage its water to promote economic growth and address droughts while protecting the environment. My administration worked with a broad array of interests to ensure a balanced program that manages significant water withdrawals across the state and protects New York's farmers and businesses from undue regulatory burdens.
