We Passed Prop 1!

Nov 9, 2022

From the Vote Yes for Clean Water and Jobs Newsletter:

Thank you, New York!

Yesterday, New Yorkers across the state overwhelmingly voted to pass Prop 1, delivering a monumental victory for clean water, healthy air, and good jobs for generations to come.

We could not have done it without the help of supporters like you.

Last night, the Vote Yes for Clean Water and Jobs coalition issued the following statement, which we would like to share with you:

We built a diverse and engaged coalition of over three hundred environmental organizations, unions and business groups that propelled this measure to success. Thanks to the work of this coalition, who handed out tens of thousands of palm cards, window signs and lawn signs, and enthusiastic New Yorkers, we have delivered the first environmental bond act in a generation. The coalition also funded a robust paid media operation that educated voters on both sides of the aisle on the importance of voting yes on the Clean Water, Clean Air and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act. The passage of this measure will pay for projects that protect clean drinking water, tackle climate change and conserve natural resources while creating jobs and delivering environmental justice across New York State. Now we start the important work of implementation. Onward!

Thank you for making history with us last night!
