Text reads: New York Voters: Flip the Ballot! Vote YES on Proposition 1 on November 8. Proposition 1: - safeguards clean drinking water - supports ~10,000 jobs - conserves crucial wildlife habitats, farms, forests and wetlands - aids in planting trees, reducing lead exposure, increasing energy efficient public buildings - mitigates climate change - lays groundwork for a zero-emission school bus fleet

This Election Day, NYLPI urges voters to vote YES on Proposition 1, the Environmental Bond Act. The Clean Water, Clean Air, and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Proposal 2022 is a crucial piece of legislation that will help all New Yorkers!

Proposition 1:

  • helps school districts purchase zero-emissions electric school buses where they are needed most
  • safeguards clean drinking water
  • supports ~100,000 jobs
  • conserves crucial wildlife habitats, farms, forests, and wetlands
  • aids in planting trees, reducing lead exposure, increasing energy-efficient public buildings
  • mitigates climate change

Don’t forget to #FlipTheBallot by voting YES to Prop 1 on the back of your ballot when you vote early, return your absentee ballot, or go to the polls on November 8th.

Read the New York Times‘ coverage of Prop 1 and NYLPI’s work in electrifying school buses, a key element of the legislation. We recommend a YES vote on this proposal because a vote for the Environmental Bond Act is a vote for a healthier environment, thousands of jobs, and a more resilient New York.
