Green Memos to the Governor & the State Legislature includes proposals designed to bolster economic development while addressing New York’s high profile environmental challenges, including hydraulic fracturing for natural gas, reducing energy use, and providing resources for the state’s environmental agencies. “During the campaign Governor Cuomo unveiled his big picture vision for protecting New York’s environment.
