Andrew Cuomo on Environment

Democratic Governor


Water policy to protect environment and business interests

The preservation and protection of New York's water resources is vital to the state's residents, farmers and businesses. This law will enhance the state's ability to manage its water to promote economic growth and address droughts while protecting the environment. My administration worked with a broad array of interests to ensure a balanced program that manages significant water withdrawals across the state and protects New York's farmers and businesses from undue regulatory burdens.

Make a U-turn on development highway, towards sustainability

Sprawling land development is consuming the American countryside at a rate of almost 365 acres per hour. Traffic and pollution combine with this loss of pristine landscapes to undermine our quality of life, our productivity, and our public health. Democrats understand that it is time to make a U-turn on the development highway and focus once again on developing our cities and our existing suburbs with more sustainable long-term approach. That means restoring our abandoned industrial sites to productive uses, encouraging inner-city development rather than subsidizing sprawl, and developing balancing development with preservation.
