Campaign finance laws are seen as the main obstacle to passing our Super Bills

The 23rd annual Earth Day Lobby Day took place last week in Albany, with close to 100 grassroots advocates in attendance hoping to convince legislators to support five policy issues they deem, “common-sense environmental Super Bills.”

The policy issues discussed during the day of environmental advocacy would impose a two-year fracking moratorium, reduce greenhouse gas pollution, expand solar energy, protect children from harmful chemicals in their toys and reform campaign finance laws.

“We are dealing with some of the top issues facing not only New York state but the planet � fracking, climate change, solar power, toxins in products and campaign finance reform,” said Laura Haight, the senior environmental associate for the New York Public Interest Research Group.
