Voters to decide on New York State Environmental Bond Act

Along with state and local election races, voters will decide numerous ballot proposals today.
One of the proposals is the New York State Environmental Bond Act.
On April 9, Gov. Kathy Hochul and the state legislature green lit the question. It is asking for approval to bond $4.2 billion for investment in clean water, air, wildlife and the environment over a number of years.
If this sounds familiar to you, that's because this was approved back in the 2020 budget, but the COVID-19 pandemic pumped the brakes on it.
If approved by voters, the renamed "Clean Air, Clean Water, and Green Jobs Bond Act" would be the first act like this since 1996.
