The Business Council to Testify at Albany’s Draft Scoping Plan Public Hearing
ALBANY – The Business Council of New York State announced Thursday, Vice President Ken Pokalsky will be testifying to the New York State Climate Action Council in Albany, addressing concerns regarding the initial Scoping Plan in response to the Climate Leadership Community Protection Act (CLCPA).
Among the several concerns The Business Council has, on behalf of our membership, is the financial impact on New York’s businesses. Additional concerns include, allowing fuel and technology options to stay viable, and identifying reasonable measures that can be achieved in the short term while avoiding steps that diverge economic measures from the state during implementation efforts.
The Business Council will be submitting detailed written comments on the Scoping Plan by the June 10 deadline. A link to the full memo can be found here.
