Assemblyman Dinowitz received the environmental advocacy group’s endorsement for the 81st Assembly District in 2018 after receiving high ratings in their inaugural state legislative scorecard in 2017.
Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz received an important stamp of approval from one of the leading environmental advocacy organizations in New York State as he garnered a coveted endorsement from the New York League of Conservation Voters for his Assembly re-election campaign.
Assemblyman Dinowitz has been a leader on important environmental legislation throughout his tenure in Albany including tax credits for hybrid and electric vehicles, green roof tax credits, and prohibitions on smoking in parks and other public places. He has also co-sponsored numerous legislative efforts to combat climate change including the NYS Climate and Community Protection Act (A.8270), requiring a fully clean energy system by 2030 (A.5105), and creating a permanent environmental justice advocacy group (A.2234).
Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz said: “I am proud to receive an endorsement from the New York League of Conservation Voters, and I am proud of my environmental record over the course of my tenure in Albany. Too often, decision makers are short-sighted as they value temporary economic gains over long-term ecological destruction. Conserving our environment and combatting the effects of climate change are among my top legislative priorities – not for my benefit, but for my children and grandchildren who will inherit the world that we leave them.”
