Climate Change: Dealing with the Challenge through Laws and Lawmaking at the State and Local Level.
State Bar Center Great Hall
One Elk Street
Albany, New York 12207
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.- Legislative Forum Program
12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Lunch
We are in an era where many States and even some local governments are trying to effect policy change to deal with climate change. Other states have taken the lead by making meeting climate change goals a part of their state statutory law. In New York, there are several State laws that could be enacted to deal with climate change and would require participation on the local level for implementation.
The Legislative Forum brings together environmental leaders from the New York State Legislature and the Capital District, has an in-depth panel discussion with leading professionals, and includes a keynote speech for the Luncheon.
Additional information will be available shortly.
