Action Alert - Federal Budget Negotiations

Help Fight Climate Change and Protect Adirondack Communities and Wildlife

Tell Congress to invest in climate change mitigation, clean water, and broadband!

 

In the coming days, Congress will undertake critical budget negotiations that could help fight acid rain and climate change and foster community vibrancy in the Adirondack Park. The Park has suffered the horrible impacts of acid rain and climate change with ecological damage compounded by dangerous flooding and prolonged hot weather that stresses wildlife like moose and trout. Additionally, gaps in broadband infrastructure have been detrimental to students, the elderly, and small family businesses across the Adirondacks.

Upcoming budget negotiations will consider investments in broadband infrastructure that can help provide improved internet accessibility across the Park. Also, funding for new infrastructure will help create jobs that will aid in sequestering carbon and making our Adirondack communities more resilient to flooding and fierce storms.

We need your help to make sure we don’t miss this opportunity.

Please email your representatives by November 1, and tell them that the Adirondack Park is a national treasure that will play an essential role in fighting climate change and creating good-paying, equitable jobs. Tell them:

  • Please establish the Civilian Climate Corps, invest $55 billion in clean water infrastructure, and $10 billion in EV chargers and mass transit.
  • Please invest at least $65 billion in broadband infrastructure to close “the last mile” across the U.S., an essential need for Adirondack communities.
  • Please invest no less than $300 million to rebuild the nation’s antiquated air quality monitoring network and improve the National Ambient Air Quality Standards.

You can edit your letter or send it as-is.

Thanks so much for your help!
