Gov. Cuomo, Go Big on Clean Water Investments
With only three days until Gov. Cuomo releases his 2014 budget plan, the Albany Times Union has this advice: Invest in clean water, Governor.
Riverkeeper couldn’t agree more. The Governor’s own environmental agency calls our failure to invest adequately in water infrastructure a “gathering storm” and a “crisis.” The Times Union warns that we are looking more and more like homeowners who are letting the roof fall in rather than making necessary repairs.
Gov. Cuomo needs to give New York’s communities the help they so desperately need to solve the state’s water infrastructure crisis, when he releases his budget proposal on Tuesday. It will create jobs and it will protect the investment we’ve all made in our communities. It will improve our quality of life and protect our natural heritage.
To put it bluntly: there is no greatness in New York’s future without clean water.
Governor Cuomo: whether you do it for the jobs it would create or to protect our quality of life and natural resources, we’re counting on you to “go big” on clean water investments, in Tuesday’s budget plan.
