Climate Superfund Act Would Help Disadvantaged Communities

A key climate issue still being debated in the pending state budget is the Climate Superfund Act. Of the $3 billion annually that would be raised by the Climate Superfund Act, one-third or a billion dollars would be spent to repair damages in disadvantaged communities. On Tuesday, April 2 supporters of the Climate Superfund held a news conference at the Capitol. We hear from MC Alycia Bacon, NY Renews; Senator Rachel May; Rashida Tyler, Associate Director, NYS Council of Churches; Blair Horner of NYPIRG; and Dr. Sohaib Chekima, Annur Islamic School Principal and Union College Adjunct Professor.
