ALBANY, N.Y. – The Adirondack Council today congratulated Assemblyman Steven Englebright, D-Setauket, on his appointment by Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie as Chairman of the Environmental Conservation Committee.

“Assemblyman Englebright has a stellar record of support for environmental protection and conservation initiatives and has been a friend to the Adirondack Park since his career in the Legislature began back in 1992,” said Adirondack Council Executive Director William C. Janeway.”

“Chairman Englebright was a sponsor of the Environmental Protection Fund and has worked hard over the years to increase the amount of money in the Fund,” Janeway said. “He was also a leading proponent for the use of clean, renewable energy, authoring New York’s solar net-metering laws in the 1990s and expanding the program in 2008.”

“Chairman Englebright has helped establish the Assembly's long held appreciation for clean water, public health, parks, and the state's largest Park, the Adirondack Park,” Janeway said. “The Adirondack Council and others who care about the wilderness and the communities of the Park will be pleased with this appointment.”

The Adirondack Council’s mission is to ensure the ecological integrity and wild character of New York’s six-million-acre Adirondack Park. The Council envisions an Adirondack Park comprised of core wilderness areas, surrounded by working forests and farms, and vibrant rural communities. Adirondack Council members live in all 50 United States.
