Assemblymember Dinowitz has been a strong advocate for a greener and healthier environment throughout his time in public service. This year, he co-sponsored legislation to get dangerous chemicals out of children's toys and products - one of NYLCV's top priorities for 2014 - and he voted in favor of bills to help prepare the state for climate change risks and extend the Brownfield Cleanup Program. He has also co-sponsored legislation to establish greenhouse gas emission limits, and require state health authorities to more effectively combat lead poisoning.
If re-elected, Dinowitz has pledged to support a stronger Environmental Protection Fund and expedite legislation that will transition New York away from dirtier, less-efficient energy sources.
"The Bronx has a strong environmental ally in Jeffrey Dinowitz," said Jon Del Giorno, chair of NYLCV's New York City Chapter. "Whether it's fighting lead poisoning and air pollution, or championing green roofs and clean energy, he has made environmental sustainability a high priority. We are proud to endorse Assemblymember Jeffrey Dinowitz for re-election and we urge voters who care about a cleaner, greener Bronx to support him on Election Day."
In response to the endorsement, Assemblymember Jeffrey Dinowitz said: "I am very pleased to receive the endorsement of the New York League of Conservation Voters, one of New York's top environmental advocacy organizations. Throughout my time in office, I have made it a priority to improve water and air quality, invest in public transportation, reduce waste, and support numerous other important environmental initiatives. I am particularly proud to have cosponsored legislation -- which passed in the Assembly this year -- to place a three-year moratorium on hydrofracking in New York State. I look forward to working alongside the New York League of Conservation Voters in upcoming years to protect the health of our communities and natural spaces."
