1. Future Without Fossil Fuels

Legislation introduced by State Senator Jen Metzger and Assembly Member Nily Rozic would ban the development of new natural gas plants and pipelines and direct state energy officials to create a plan for moving the electrical grid entirely off fossil fuels by 2040, according to the Daily News. The legislation is known as the "Freedom From Fossil Fuels Act," S5200 / A7479.

See the video of State Senator Harckham's endorsement.
