Bronx electeds support legislation that aims to help New York buildings meet energy efficiency goals

The City Council has launched a concerted effort with two letters in an attempt to convince Albany lawmakers to pass the Growing Resilient & Energy-Efficient NY (GREEN) Buildings Act that would assist buildings in New York City as well as New York state to meet the requirements of the law for Local Law 97 for residences in the Bronx as well as the five boroughs and throughout the state.

The first letter, written by Brooklyn Council Member Justin Brannan, was sent to Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and Speaker Carl Heastie on Feb. 21 and expresses the importance of addressing climate change and meeting New York State emission reduction targets.
